Zokaites short on petition signatures for Sioux Falls mayor

Sioux Falls, SD (KSFY) Candidates submitted their petitions to run for mayor of Sioux Falls Friday, but one campaign came up short.

“O my gosh it was very distressing, so much work went into, I had no idea how hard it was to get 200 signatures,” David Zokaites said. “At the end I was almost there but just barely didn't quite make it and found it extremely distressing.”

Zokaites says he collected more than the 200 needed signatures, but when it came to verifiable entries, he was four signatures short.

He says he's officially not on the ballot, but he still hopes to participate in mayoral forums throughout the election to raise awareness on several topics.
