Meet Joe Skaug, Candidate For Jerome Mayor


By Brittany Cooper

Jerome, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) After receiving input from local citizens, Joe Skaug has decided to run for mayor of Jerome.

Skaug says his decision is a result of the city losing some key positions whether it was termination or resignation.

"There needs to be some emotional and psychological healing with the employees, a matter of trust with the citizens and to bring the community together. The last one to two years, things have really gone awry. The slush fund that is very important, had hundreds of thousands of dollars that's been depleted," explains Skaug.

Skaug's priorities, the sewer issue, working better with the Hispanic community and speed traps on South Lincoln.
