Zimbelman Won't Seek Reelection

Posted: Updated:

Minot's mayor for more than a decade says he's had enough in that position and won't seek reelection.

Curt Zimbelman made the announcement this weekend.

At this morning's ribbon cutting for the 55th Street Bridge, the mayor told us that he thinks it's time for him to step aside and clear the way for some new ideas.

But he says his dozen years as mayor have been very rewarding.

(Curt Zimbelman, Minot Mayor) "It surprises me that I did it but it's been good. I've grown a lot through it and enjoyed working for the people of Minot."

(Sen. John Hoeven) "He has been there for us always and I know he'll continue to be there for us in whatever capacity we need."

Zimbelman was first elected Minot mayor in 2002 and was re-elected twice.

The election to choose a mayor for Minot will be held next June.
