Last year, then Dell Rapids mayor Scott Fiegen, was appointed to the state legislature in District 25 (which stretches into Sioux Falls).
I’m not sure if Scott has plans to run for office in Sioux Falls, or to continue to serve on the legislature, but doesn’t it seem odd that someone would serve as a mayor of a community for seven years, then just split. And it’s not like he is moving to Florida or California to retire, he is moving a few miles away to Sioux Falls. ‘Hey folks, it’s been fun, but your town isn’t big enough for me, see yah later.’
Recently, Scott’s daughter was appointed to the Sioux Falls planning commission. He was in attendance at the meeting when her appointment was approved by the city council.
We’ll be watching.
