Mayor Mike Seminary will have a challenger in the upcoming election.
Bismarck consultant and former radio-show host Steve Bakken says he will run for mayor this year.
We were there as he made the announcement on K-F-Y-R radio this afternoon.
He told us the current government doesn’t do a good job of listening to the tax payers, and he wants to change that.
“It’s our city. We need to take that back because it doesn’t belong to us anymore. City government just hasn’t been a good care taker of the taxpayers of Bismarck and their vision,” said Steve Bakken, candidate for mayor.
We spoke to Mayor Mike Seminary on the phone today.
He wasn’t available for an on-camera interview but said he looks forward to having an opponent.
