Sturgis Seats New Mayor In Historic Fashion

(Sturgis, SD) — There’s a new mayor in Sturgis. Angela Wilkerson was seated by city council on a 5-to-3 vote Tuesday after interviewing candidates. It’s actually quite a historic event as she becomes only the second woman to be named mayor in Sturgis. And Wilkerson is now the first in the last 74 years. She has been selected to serve just 14 months after Mark Carstensen abruptly stepped down as Mayor in the middle of February.
