Ward 5 Race

Posted: Updated:

Today we are featuring two Ward 5 alderman candidates.

Scott Knudsvig has lived in the city for 11 years, and says he is sympathetic to home owners who are still trying to rebuild.

Knudsvig also wants to focus on property taxes.

(Scott Knudsvig, Ward 5 Incumbent) "I have been a staunch advocate, ever since I have been on council for the last 8 years, of controlling property taxes, and keeping them affordable for our citizens."

Miranda Schuler is Knudsvig's opponent, and says she doesn't come from political roots, but that maybe why she is right for the job. The people of Ward 5 talk to her on a personal level.

(Miranda Schuler, Ward 5 Candidate) "I don't know that I can fix all the problems, but I really do want to be more active in the city. With an insurance background, I would like to be more active in the flood control."

If you can't make it to the polls next Tuesday, early voting is already in full swing at the Ward County Courthouse.
