Candidates Make Their Case

Posted: Updated:

June 10th is just around the corner, and that means election time to those running for city government positions in Minot.

Today we hear from Ward one's alderman candidates.

David Lehner has been a part of the city council over the past 12 years, and says he is vested in this community.

He believes quality of life, and improving flooding control should be of the highest concern.

(David Lehner, Ward 1 Incumbent) "Quality of life would represent knowing that A) every Spring when we get a lot of snow, and it starts melting, and we get some rain, I don't have to worry about the river overflowing it's banks and B) if we get some flood protection in, I know that my flood insurance, I know all of you that are insurance people, will stay probably in an affordable state, rather than getting extremely expensive, not being able to afford it."

His opponent, Robert Timm, is also concerned with flood issues. Timm rebuilt after the 2011 flood, he now owns a real estate business and says Minot might be expanding too quickly.
