Sioux Falls voters have chosen Paul TenHaken to be the city’s next mayor.
In a runoff election against Jolene Loetscher, with all votes counted, TenHaken won with 63 percent of the votes. Loetscher has 37 percent of the votes.
“Hands down my number one priority will be tackling the narcotics growth in our city; I say that because the numbers I’ve dug into in the narcotics industry are quite substantial,” TenHaken said.
“The first point being the narcotics growth in Sioux Falls, second point being workforce, and the third point being the transparency, communication out of City Hall,” TenHaken said.
TenHaken is scheduled to take over as mayor on May 15.
