In my role as Mayor, I have the opportunity to interact daily with residents, community members and business leaders across industries and company sizes. Whether it’s sharing a meal with a downtown restaurant owner or mentoring young entrepreneurs, these conversations better my understanding of the issues that are top of mind in Sioux Falls.
The common thread I hear from residents is their desire to make Sioux Falls an even better place to live and work. It’s clear from Sioux Falls’ accolades that we are doing more than a few things right. Sioux Falls consistently earns top rankings as a place to visit and live because of our thriving economy, community attractions and amenities, to name a few.
But it’s really the people of our community who give Sioux Falls the leading edge. It’s the people—including those behind our local businesses—who continue to help keep our economy strong and make Sioux Falls a vibrant community. You’ll have the chance to meet several of them in this publication.
I encourage you to take some time to get to know the faces of Sioux Falls—both the people featured in these pages and the new faces in your neighborhood, church or workplace. In 2022, let’s continue to build relationships and form community for an even stronger Sioux Falls.
