City commissioner Wimmer to take on incumbent Walaker for mayor of North Dakota's largest city


FARGO, North Dakota — Fargo mayor and longtime city official Dennis Walaker has a challenger.

City commissioner Brad Wimmer, who has served alongside Walaker for eight years, is holding a news conference Thursday morning to announce he's running for mayor in North Dakota's largest city.

Wimmer previously served for eight years on the Fargo park board. He recently finished his term as president of the North Dakota League of Cities.

Walaker, who worked as Fargo's public works director for many years, is running for a third term, the maximum allowed by city statute.
