Mandan City Commissioner Shauna Laber announced Tuesday she will seek a second term.

“I want to continue working for the city, addressing the goals of our infrastructure needs and being the best city we can be,” she said.

Laber holds the portfolio assignments for municipal court, streets, forestry, water line and sewer line maintenance, solid waste utility, street light utility, Dakota Media Access and Morton County planning and zoning.

“I just want to fix what I know is wrong and see if we can improve,” she said.

Efforts Laber said she’d like to continue include the public works facility improvement project, water and flood control projects, renegotiation franchise agreements and retaining the city’s contract with Dakota Media Access.

“Keeping individuals informed of government, with access through radio and TV, is very important to me,” she said.

Employed with Basin Electric Power Cooperative as a property and right-of-way specialist, Laber also has experience in manufacturing and mining. Together with her husband, Jeff, the couple has three children and two grandchildren.

Laber said she’s committed to the community and “always open” to citizens’ comments and feedback.

“I want to be here to do good work,” she said. “I really enjoy serving the people of Mandan and hope they give me the opportunity to continue my service.”

Commissioner Dennis Rohr’s four-year term also expires this year. The deadline for filing petitions is 4 p.m. April 9. Election Day is June 12.
