I am voting for Jolene Loetscher as our next mayor. Not because she is a woman, but because she is a person of substance who happens to be a woman.
Jolene’s ideas on creating opportunities for all, in housing, transportation, employment, neighborhoods, and families are solid. She talks and walks inclusiveness.
Her positions on streets, city utilities, and public safety are in tune with what well run city governments around the country are doing.
She wants expanded mental health and addiction programs to meet the challenges that are crippling individuals and creating huge strains on families and our community support systems, including law enforcement.
She is intelligent, a good listener, and a great speaker. Her leadership skills are well known to legislators in Pierre. Jolene’s personal story of success after suffering abuse is uplifting. She is not afraid to take on complex and controversial issues.
I want our next mayor to lift us up, provide real opportunities, and to be transparent with our money,
Jolene Loetscher is the right person for the job. She is a person of substance. She is getting my vote.
Mayor of Sioux Falls 1974-84
