Jamison, Huether focus on traffic in mayoral race

Posted: Updated:

If Greg Jamison is mayor of Sioux Falls, he says he'll put 'people first.'

That's what he's calling the campaign initiative he released today.

He's supporting a new traffic signal system that he would suggest the city adapt -- if he's elected.

The wireless system would monitor traffic-flow to maximize our current road system -- alleviating the need for more construction.

"Traffic is certainly one of those items that I've heard from people while campaigning," Jamison said. "They're not happy about it. When you hear these things, you start to engage, to realize what the issues are and find things that you could do, should do as mayor."

Jamison is currently the only candidate running against Mayor Mike Huether.

Huether said he will run, but right now, he's focusing on his role as mayor.

He said he'll campaign when the time is right, and that, like Jamison, he wants to keep Sioux Falls moving.

"I don't think there's anybody in Sioux Falls who is not aware that keeping Sioux Falls moving and improving the infrastructure of this town has been one of the top priorities for me" he said. "And it will continue to be so.

Both candidates must file nominating petitions with the city by February 28. If other candidates join the race, their paperwork will be due the same day.
