BROOKINGS – Dr. Isaiah Crevier has filed paperwork to run for a seat on the Brookings City Council, according to City Clerk Bonnie Foster.
“I’ve been a part of the Brookings community pretty much my entire life,” Crevier said. “I’m actually looking to better the Brookings community here.”
Two three-year council seats are up for election April 13. They are currently held by Patty Bacon and Nick Wendell.
Crevier, Nate Holden and Nick Schmeichel have filed for a council seat.
The mayor’s three-year seat is also up for election. Keith Corbett is currently the mayor, but he is not seeking re-election.
Current councilor Ope Niemeyer and former police chief Jeff Miller have filed for the mayor’s seat.
A graduate of South Dakota State University, Crevier is a chiropractor and owns Champion Health Chiropractic.
“Over the years, we’ve noticed how the city government spends our money, and I would like to see some of that change in order to invest in the future of the Brookings community,” Crevier said.
“We do have some incredible programs here in Brookings to help entrepreneurs, start-ups and large businesses. Over the next few years, we’ll probably see a lot of those things define our community as a whole.
“I’d like to see all of our businesses supported. We need to pretty much come together as a business community and to make sure that our neighborhood businesses are given, like, every opportunity that there is to thrive,” Crevier said.
Deadline for candidates to file their paperwork to run is 5 p.m. Feb. 26 at the City Clerk’s Office, Brookings City & County Government Center, 520 Third St., Suite 230.
