VIDEO: Householter to Run For City Commission

KSAL Staff - May 12, 2017 4:31 pm

Aaron Householter was first elected in April of 2011 to a 4-year term on the Salina City Commission.

A former Salina Mayor wants to again be a city commissioner. Aaron Housholter announced Friday that he plans to run for election.

Householter, a Salina businessman and musician who is also a reserve deputy with the Saline County Sheriff’s Office, was first elected in April of 2011 to a 4-year term on the Salina City Commission. He served one term as mayor.

Householter tells KSAL News that he wants to run again for various reasons. Most notably his main concern is job creation.

Householter joins current city commissioners Melissa Hodges and Jon Blanchard, who also intend to run again. Joe Hay, who narrowly missed winning a commission seat in the most previous election, has also filed to run.

Three city commission seats will be open. The terms of Hodges, Blanchard, and Mayor Kaye Crawford all expire this year.

The deadline to file for the fall election is June 1st at noon.

Why do you think any of us taxpayers would want to vote for you after the last time you were on the commission. We want fair-minded new people who live like most Salina residents do.

Well Doug, I’m not sure what you mean? I’d be happy discuss any questions you may have. Since you mention taxpayers I’m going guess that like most people, you are concerned with the ever rising costs of living in Salina. I think you can look back and see that I have been an advocate of smart growth and higher wage jobs for Salina. The idea that we can keep adding mikes of infrastructure and not new people to spread out the expenses is simple insane. Again, I think you can look back at my track record and see I was a strong believer in making the best of what we have as a community. You can also see my desire to grow local businesses.
I’m not sure if you have some misconception that I’m part of the “good ol’ boy network” but you couldn’t be further from the truth on that. I think I am a man of the people . I lived in the same $28,500 house for almost 20 years before saving enough money for a new house which like most people, I still owe money on. Maybe more information than you wanted, but I’m an open book. Feel free to contact me through Facebook, by phone or I’m always up for meeting for a coffee etc.
