Jimmie Tengesdal, Minot
I have worked with Leslie Barney for many years and would like to share why I will be voting for her husband, Chuck, for mayor. We need a mayor who is committed to the community of Minot. Chuck and Leslie have made Minot their home, raising both of their children here. I taught their daughter, Kelsey, for six years so I have gotten to know Chuck as a parent as well as a community leader. Chuck and Leslie care about Minot. I have seen all of the work that both have done in the community. Chuck has once again made the choice to get involved as he has done many times, serving on the city council and getting involved on various local boards. With the rapid growth and expansion of our city, he has the commitment it takes to make important decisions that will affect us all. The Mayor is the face of our community not only welcoming visitors for events such as the Hostfest but is also someone who is willing to advocate for Minot in the upcoming 2015 North Dakota legislative session. We need a serious candidate that is willing to work to solve the many issues facing Minot. Chuck Barney is that candidate!
