Representative Alan Hanks gets into RC Mayoral Race
Adding to an already crowded field smelling blood in the Rapid City Mayoral Race, State Representative Alan Hanks has confirmed what many had long suspected, that he would enter this year's mayoral contest:
State Rep. Alan Hanks announced Tuesday his candidacy for mayor of Rapid City in the June 5 municipal election.Read it all here in the Scott Aust article in the Rapid City Journal. With Hanks' candidacy, that puts seven people willing to jump in against the current mayor who faces issues of his health (as brought up in today's other article), his leadership, the city's investment in infrastructure, and Shaw's pounding on cars in Iowa.
Hanks, a former city council member and current District 32 representative, said he will resign his seat in the Legislature if elected mayor. Gov. Mike Rounds would then appoint a replacement to serve the remaining year of his current term.
