Candidates gearing up for municipal election

Posted: Updated:

The 2014 campaign season is starting to take shape.

In the fall, we'll cast ballots in the gubernatorial race and the race for US Senate.

But even sooner, on April 8, Sioux Falls heads to the polls for municipal elections.

As of now, Rex Rolfing and Sue Aguilar have yet to decide if they will run for a second term on the city council.

Both say their answers should come soon after the holidays.

Michelle Erpenbach has announced she will be running for another term.

"It's about making homeowners' jobs easier in terms of zoning in terms of remodeling -- those sorts of things. So that will be a key issue for me," said Erpenbach.

Over the past few years, these council members have witnessed and helped shape what Sioux Falls is today.

"I think that this council has been very hardworking. I think that we've gotten a lot of really important legislation passed and enacted," said Aguilar.

When you take a look around our city, it's impossible to not notice all the new infrastructure and developments.

"The event center going up. That's a big one. I also helped with the CVB , the bid district that they have with the additional tax on visitors," said Rolfing.

"The council has appropriated that half million dollars to help with larger projects for affordable housing to make them more affordable for folks who are paying rent. So that's one of the greatest things so far that has happened with my term," said Erpenbach.

Election day is five months away and between now and then, the interest in these races will only be increasing
