West Fargo commissioner confirms re-election bidWEST FARGO – Mike Thorstad says he will seek a second term on the West Fargo City Commission in June.
Thorstad said last month he was still considering the race, and he confirmed his intentions to the West Fargo Pioneer this week.
Two four-year terms are open on the June ballot: Thorstad’s and City Commissioner Mark Simmons, who has already said he’ll seek re-election to his third term.
Ex-mayoral candidate Peter Karl is challenging the incumbents for a seat on the commission, after having filed the necessary petitions at West Fargo City Hall.
