Mayoral Candidate Wants 'People First'

Mayoral Candidate Wants 'People First'
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A Sioux Falls candidate for mayor says he wants to put "People First".

Greg Jamison announced part one of his People First Initiative. Today, he outlined a goal he calls "FAST Track".

If elected, he wants to put sensors at intersections throughout the city, to monitor traffic so stop lights can adjust for how many cars are going through.

"Over the lifetime of your driving, you could spend $46,500 wasted, waiting for lights. And that's about the average salary of a Sioux Falls or South Dakota individual, so that's a huge cost savings to all of us," Jamison said.

Mayor Mike Huether has responded to Jamison's announcement. He says he too, has outlined and accomplished goals to enhance the quality of life and "that includes keeping Sioux Falls moving on much improved roadways."
