WATERTOWN, S.D.–Kay Solberg is the only female city council candidate on the ballot in Watertown this month, and even before the election, she’s already a winner in a sense.

That’s because she won a legal challenge to get in the race in Ward A.

The Watertown City Finance Office rejected her petition signatures because the form she submitted did not include a zip code.

She hired a lawyer, went to court, and a judge ruled she should be on the ballot as a candidate.

Now that she is, Solberg wants Watertown to do a better job of budget planning for large expenditures through its five-year Capital Improvement Plan….

Solberg’s opponent in Ward A is former councilman Mike Danforth.

Election Day is June 15th.

Monday, we visit with Ward C Councilman Michael Heuer, who’s running for re-election.
