Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - For the first time since he's been mayor Dennis Walaker is officially endorsing someone for the Fargo City Commission. Mayor Walaker is announcing his support for candidate Melissa Sobolik earlier today.

The mayor says the endorsement is not an act of revenge, but rather Sobolik has shown commitment and dedication to learning about Fargo's city government.

Sobolik went to every city department to find out exactly how it operated. The mayor says a fresh face is exactly what the commission needs.

Dennis Walaker – Fargo Mayor: “I've always felt that a woman should be part of this commission because they look at things very different than this male dominated commission.”

As of right now, Mayor Walaker says he does not plan to endorse any other candidates.
