Three Way Race for Rapid City's Ward 3

Three races for city council seats are uncontested, but in Ward 3, two challengers have emerged. Jerry Wright is current council president, seeking his third term. Running against him are Jerry Cole, former director of the Rapid City Parks Department and current executive director of the Hill City Chamber of Commerce, and Michael Sanborn, owner of Sanborn Advertising. The Rapid City Journal published a profile on the three candidates, focused largely on their approach to infrastructure and major city projects.

Early voting is underway for the June 2nd election. Find out more on our election information page and in the archive.
