Loetscher Reacts To Runoff Loss: “This Is Just The Beginning”


As Sioux Falls mayor-elect Paul TenHaken prepares to take office, his opponent is also looking ahead.  Jolene Loetscher talked about that after her concession speech Tuesday night.

“We are so proud of the race that we have run.  The journey we’ve had, the conversations we’ve started, and we’ve said this is just the beginning,” Loetscher said. “We’ve gotten people engaged in the process, and we hope that continues.”

While many election days feature a number of candidates, issues and ballot questions, most voters in Sioux Falls on Tuesday just had one decision to make. KELOLAND News asked Loetscher how it feels to have many people come out just to vote for her and her alone.

“It is humbling that someone took their time out and went and voted for just my name because they believed in what we have brought forward,” Loetscher said. “And that is an incredible feeling, and I look forward to them staying involved in that process, too.”
