For my Yankton readers, we have some political news today. It turns out that there will be a spring municipal election.
Nominating petitions have been slow to come in from candidates looking to fill three open seats on the Yankton City Commission. However, Jeffrey Swedeen turned his in today, making him the fourth candidate and ensuring an election. He joins Nancy Wenande, Craig Sommer and Jacob Hoffner in the race.
Any other candidates must have nominating petitions turned in by 5 p.m. Friday.
