SIOUX CITY | Sioux City resident Jake Jungers announced Wednesday that he will be pursuing a spot on the Sioux City Council in November's election.
In a news release sent to local media, Jungers said he is running "to make a real difference for the next generation."
"I promise to you, it will no longer be business as usual this November," Jungers said.
Jungers was one of 14 people who applied to fill a vacant City Council seat earlier this year. The council on Monday appointed Alex Watters to serve the final year of the four-year term vacated by Keith Radig, who resigned to serve on the Woodbury County Board of Supervisors.
Three of the five council seats will be up for re-election this year: Watters, Dan Moore and Pete Groetken.
