Every now and then, a candidate for local office appears that especially gives me encouragement for the future. An example is Ritchie Nordstrom, running for City Council in Ward 2. I’ve known Ritchie for seven years, and in that time I have admired both his commitment and his ability to inspire communities to work together. Of course, Ritchie’s strong credibility as an advocate for the regular taxpayer is needed on City Council. But even more, I believe his positive, constructive approach is critical to help the City Council move beyond its recent divisions and lead Rapid City forward. I urge the voters of Ward 2 to get to the polls and vote for Ritchie Nordstrom for City Council on June 2.
