Staggers: Citizens Want To Get Back To Basics

Staggers: Citizens Want To Get Back To Basics
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The winner of the at large seat on the city council is Kermit Staggers, who has already served eight years on the council. 

Staggers won with 50 percent of the vote.  Other long-term council member, De Knudson, had 38 percent of the vote while newcomer Cory Buttemeier wrapped it up with 11 percent.

Staggers says when there is a contested race, it is difficult to know what the result will be so he is grateful to win with 50 percent of the votes. 

In his previous terms on the city council, Staggers earned a reputation as serving as a watchdog over the city.  Staggers says he will be watching to make sure that the city doesn't spend more than the promised $115 million for the events center.

He says the events center is just one of the important issues in the city.  He feels many citizens want to get back to the basics when it comes to city government and that includes making sure Sioux Falls has excellent infrastructure.
