(Sioux Falls, SD) — Sioux Falls Mayor Paul TenHaken is endorsing the candidate challenging City Council incumbent Janet Brekke. TenHaken released his city council endorsements last week, and expressed his support for pediatrician Sarah Cole. Cole is running to unseat Brekke, who holds the council’s At-Large A seat. Brekke and TenHaken have faced off over the past four years, most recently over a fundraising email TenHaken sent out ahead of the 2024 mayoral election cycle. Brekke called the move unprecedented, while TenHaken took offense and said there was “nothing nefarious” about it. Councilors Christine Erickson, Greg Neitzert, Alex Jensen, and Marshall Selberg all hosted a fundraiser for Cole in February.
