Election night: Mike Huether greets supporters; thankful for the campaign

Posted: Updated:

Update:

The mayor greeted a crowd of about 50 supporters tonight -- thanking them for helping him reach what he hopes will be four more years in office.

And what was a tight race to start off is starting to trend in the incumbent's favor.

It's too early to call the race officially, but right now Huether is looking at a ten point lead over Jamison.

Earlier:

The polls close soon, but there's still a lot of activity at Mayor Mike Huether's campaign headquarters.

We caught up with Mayor Huether this morning as he and his wife Cindy cast their ballots at the Instructional Planning Center

There's several issues on the ballot for Sioux Falls voters to make their voices heard about the city's future. And as far as Huether's stance on the issues -- he supports the use of snow gates. He also prefers an indoor pool to replace the aging outdoor pool at Spellerberg Park.

Huether is a proponent of new construction, and he's campaigned on staying ahead of the growth of Sioux Falls.

The mayor supports referred law 3; that's the zoning ordinance Shape Places -- which would create four different zoning types to classify future developments throughout the city.

He also supports referred law 4 -- which would allow construction of a southside Walmart at 85th and Minnesota.

Throughout the election, the mayor has campaigned to keep families safe and support law enforcement.

He believes in the continued growth of Sioux Falls and addressing the needs that come with new development.

He's focused his campaign on fixing the city's infrastructure -- better roads and improving traffic flow.

One of Huether's crowning achievements has been the city's new event center -- the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center.
