Mayor Johnathan Judd made sure to shake as many hands as possible.

“We’re welcoming the new mayor Judd as well as the new council people and it’s a great time to meet with them one–on–one,” said Sheri Larson, with the MBA and who also lives in Moorhead.

Aside from the mayor, new to the team is Deb White, Shelly Dahlquist and Shelly Carlson…while Chuck Hendrickson is starting another term with the city council.

“With the diversity we have on the council now I think that everyone in Moorhead will have a voice and I think that’s something that will really help the city as a whole thrive for the next four years,” Dahlquist said.

This new team is celebrating the growth of the city thus far and looking towards opportunities for the future.

“We’re so excited to work with this new team on the city council as well as the mayor and I’d love to see what we can do in the next year,” Larson said.

Whether it’s revitalization of downtown, working on community collaborations, or providing solutions to problems, many are excited to see what’s next in Moorhead.
