Heitke says his main priority is what's best for Willmar


WILLMAR -- Mayor Les Heitke says his main priority is what's best for Willmar. Heitke is completing his fourth four-year term as mayor and is seeking a fifth term in the Nov. 2 general election. He is opposed by businessman Frank Yanish.

Heitke said he's repeatedly asked about city finances. He said people understand that federal financial problems spill over to the state level with the state passing those budgeting problems onto cities, counties and school districts.
