Kooiker making Rapid City a better place
Rapid City residents are fortunate to have a mayor who tirelessly endeavors to make our city a great place to live.
Mayor Sam strives to seek solutions, not divide; a civic leader who knows the value of the peoples’ voice in controversial budget matters (e.g., civic center expansion); a civic leader who demonstrates inclusiveness and doesn’t shy away from omnipresent racial tensions; a civic leader who is an advocate for public access for the disabled; a civic leader who has made city government user-friendly; a civic leader whose vision is on the importance of infrastructure and business development; so much more.
To mimic Grandpa, “It’s not wise to change horse midstream.” Re-elect Mayor Sam so he can continue his good work for this great town of ours. Grandpa would agree and say, “That’s a wise decision.”

Allender has track record, skills to be mayor
I have had the pleasure to speak directly with Steve Allender on two occasions and found him to be honest, straightforward and fiscally responsible. These are not traits you find in most politicians, and I think that is because he isn’t a politician. He is a resident of this city and former servant of its residents. As mayor he wants to continue that service to us, the citizens of Rapid City. He wants to work for us and make things better for Rapid City as a whole.
You have free articles remaining.
Steve was able to explain complex issues, like the civic center expansion and its ADA violations, in a way I have never heard from any media outlet or city government official. His explanation was clear, coherent and concise giving me a much better understanding of the issues and possible solutions. I look forward to his fresh viewpoint on other issues Rapid City faces.
These are reasons enough for me to vote for Steve Allender for mayor of Rapid City on June 2. He will move this city forward in the direction it needs.

Wright has earned re-election to City Council
In the four years Jerry Wright has been a Ward 3 alderman, he has done an exemplary job for the city. He brings an extensive engineering background, decades of military service, and an uncanny ability to bring people together.
Respected by his peers, he was twice elected president of the City Council. He has the energy, expertise and management skills this job so desperately needs. Please return this outstanding public servant to the council with your vote for Jerry Wright on June 2.
