A Sioux Falls Victory for Paul TenHaken

May 1st, 2018, was a night of glorious victory for Paul TenHaken and Sioux Falls.

Enthusiasm and energy was high at Paul’s results party as supporters watched the results come in.  First came the absentee ballot report showing approximately a 2/3 to 1/3 ratio in Paul’s favor, giving supporters early encouragement; then the precincts started reporting with a consistent 59% to 63% favor resulting in a final 63% victory.  FHA Action congratulates Paul TenHaken as the next Mayor of Sioux Falls.

As I surveyed the room of supporters, I was praising God for all the hard working faithful people who put their values to work by praying, calling citizens, knocking on doors, sending emails, Facebook posts, putting up signage and then finalizing their convictions at the polls.  It’s a beautiful sight to see conservatives and the faith-based communities come together and make their voices heard, for it is righteousness that exalts a nation. I also want to give a big thank you to pastors across the city that encouraged their church members to get out and vote.

Sioux Falls also made history with this year’s mayoral election.  The local news reported after the primary in April that Sioux Falls has never elected a mayor who came in first in the primary.  Thanks to all for getting out to vote!

Let us all resolve to continue to pray for and support Paul as he leads the City of Sioux Falls.  This is just the first battle.  I’m sure their will be more challenges ahead.
