Mayoral Candidates On Jamison's Integrity Pledge

Mayoral Candidates On Jamison's Integrity Pledge
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Sioux Falls mayoral candidate, Greg Jamison, is challenging his opponent, Mayor Mike Huether, to sign an integrity pledge.

Jamison signed the pledge Tuesday, promising that if elected Mayor, neither he, nor his wife, would invest in any real estate development or make any other business investment that requires oversight and approval by the City Council or any City employee supervised by the Mayor.

"I believe over the last four years that that trust has been eroded, so going into this election, if elected, I want to do everything I can to restore that trust and this pledge is a part of that approach," Jamison said.

"The people of Sioux Falls are wise.  They know these types of pledges, they're negative; they're unproductive and they're solely intended to garner media attention and nothing more. I'm going back to work now and I'm going to do the people's business," Huether said.

Though Jamison called on Huether to sign the pledge during Tuesday's news conference, Huether's office was not aware of the pledge until contacted by KELOLAND News.
