BRANDON, S.D. (KELO) — The City of Brandon saw a 20-percent turnout for its Mayoral election Tuesday.
With more than 1,100 votes, Paul Lundberg will keep the job he was appointed to in October of 2018. He beats out Tim Wakefield who finished with 290 votes. Lundberg says Brandon is a growing community and there are a lot of opinions on what the city should focus on from infrastructure to youth activities.
“Everybody wants it done right away but money drives that obviously. We’ll get a schedule. We’ll get all those things accomplished. Hopefully a lot of them in the next four years,” Lundberg said.
Lundberg has been an employee with the Brandon Valley School District for 29 years. The election results are unofficial until approved by the City Council.
