Mayor Marty Dunn runs for re-election
March 26, 2020
Mayor Marty Dunn is once again up for re-election as mayor. Dunn, who has served on council since the early 2000s and served as mayor from 2004-2007 and 2016-present is running against Debra Callahan.
When asked about Waitsburg's recent flood event, Dunn credited the City's Flood Response plan, the fact that the Main Street bridge had been replaced, and that the dike at the fairground area had been armored with helping to limit the damage to the town.
"We still have more work to do, hopefully we can get the Preston bridge replaced and we can continue to maintain the levy system according to the standards of the Army Corps of Engineers."
Dunn feels that his involvement over the past years, "gives me a lot of consistency with city operations and past knowledge of what has happened, what the council has been through and taken care of." He continued, " I am always open with the citizens and the public and listen to their cares and concerns as carefully as possible. I am always willing and open to talk with anybody."
