It's A Brighter Day In Minot ND Today

SunnyIt's A Brighter Day In Minot ND Today!

A special election was held yesterday, 03/01/2016, to allow for a change in the City charter. This change was promoted by a group called MakeMinot.com who's ultimate goal is to bring down the size of our City council from 14 members to 5, 6, or 7.

Turn out for this special election was expected to be very low and it was expected that "The Good Old Boys Club" would find some way to make the election go their way. It didn't happen! 

Stick Boy DancingThe people turned out in mass and voted for change by a vote of 3,047 to 519! Election officials originally expected about 1,000 votes. The people of Minot sent a clear message... throw the bums out!

The next step comes in June to actually change the number from 14 to half that or less making those left standing more accountable to the people it serves.
