Final campaign efforts

Posted: Updated:

Although the election is just a few days away, the campaigning is far from over according to mayoral candidates Greg  Jamison and incumbent Mike Huether.

"I've been going extra hard but it's still creating memories. I'm hanging out with my nephew Brock again. We're in the 'My Man Mike Truck' creating a mess, creating memories, right? It's work trying to earn the honor to be mayor," said Huether.

"The weekend before is a lot of times spent just trying to connect with as many people as you can, be as many places as you can. There's a little bit of relaxing only just because you're exhausted from the months and months of campaigning. Last home stretch -- you kind of want to finish strong," said Jamison.

Whether it was knocking on doors or putting out yard signs, both candidates are not letting up.
"I have been in tennis matches before where I was ahead and I let up and I ended up losing. I am not going to let up. I'm going to play to win until that last shot is made," said Huether.

"I'm just hopeful that we'll have a great exciting night coming up on Tuesday night and we'll be planning out the future to come," said Jamison.

The April 8 vote will bring an end to the many months of campaigning these candidates and others on the ballot have put into this election.

"I think most people would say you got to spend a least -- running for mayor of Sioux Falls, you would spend at least three, four, five months actively out there campaigning hard," said Kermit Staggers, Sioux Falls City Council.

The next step is dependent on the citizens to just get out and vote.

"We have become more and more apathetic in our voting habits. This is an extremely important position in the he city of Sioux Falls that creates the future for our city. So I would encourage anyone to be voting in this election. This is extremely important," said Mark Wahlstrom, voter.
