Two qualified candidates are vying for the opportunity to serve on the Minden City Council in the south ward.
Incumbent Arlen Osterbuhr and challenger Larry Evans will appear on the ballot for voters in the south ward on the first Tuesday in November.
The Minden Courier prepared a set of questions for response by the candidates. Each candidate received the same questions and their responses are as follows:
Arlen Osterbuhr, age 50, Incumbent -12 years, seeking an additional term:
Why is it important to you to be in public office? I was raised to believe that it is important to give something back to those that have provided us with a safe community to grow up in, a school that has provided us with a good education, the church that has provided us with a sound religious background and also the businesses that have supported us throughout our life. I was also raised to believe in giving 110 percent to each and every function that I am a part of and to work have for success. I truly believe that this community has been all of this and more for my family and me. I am a strong believer and very proud of my hometown. It is among the best communities in Nebraska. I am and always have been willing to work hard for the residents of this community.
