Fargo city commissioner running for mayor

Mayoral candidate Brad Wimmer
Mayoral candidate Brad Wimmer

FARGO (KFGO AM) Brad Wimmer says he'll run for Fargo mayor with "passion." The two term city commissioner and Fargo businessman made his formal announcement Thursday. He says the timing is right to take on incumbent Dennis Walaker.

Wimmer says "change is always good." He says the status quo is wrong and its time to bring a new approach and new energy to the mayor's office.

Wimmer says he brings 16 years of experience in city goverment to the table, first as a member of the park board and then as a city commissioner. He'll focus on promoting economic growth, flood protection, a fiscally responsible city budget and health and wellness initiatives.
