Last week's snowstorm postponed the municipal elections in Spearfish and Lead to tomorrow.

While Spearfish mayor Jerry Krambeck tours Germany and Dana Boke whines vaguely about bringing professional and respectful leadership to Spearfish, Lead mayoral candidates Les Roselles and Jerry Apa slug it out on real issues. The following image of competing campaign materials from Roselles and Apa popped up on the Lead Soapbox page 15 minutes ago:

Economic development, city budget, Handley Rec Center, a Lead-Deadwood trolley route, downtown beautification... wow! In a two-minute side-by-side read, we hear more specifics than we have gotten in six weeks of Dana Boke's "Specifics-schmecifics; elect me because I manage two banks but am not an oligarch" rhetoric. Roselles and Apa are having the policy debate we should be having in Spearfish. Happy voting, Lead!
