Burlingame Bests Streyle for Unexpired Term

MINOT – Scott Burlingame defeated Roscoe Streyle in Tuesday’s election, ending Streyle’s brief time on City Council. Streyle was appointed to the council in July to fill the unexpired term of Mayor Tom Ross. Ross vacated his council seat after winning the mayoral race. 

Unofficial vote totals show Burlingame captured 53% of the vote versus 46% for Streyle, 5,245 votes to 4,624. Ironically, it was the second time Burlingame and Streyle opposed each other for a seat on the council. 

“Two years ago, Roscoe and I finished fourth and fifth. This time I came out on top,” said Burlingame. 

Burlingame, the director of Independence, Inc., said he talked to numerous people throughout the city during his campaign. 

“I think there was a real hunger for change in our city,” said Burlingame. “I think there was a hunger for more people to be involved and to engage more people.” 

The big issues, said Burlingame, was to “rely less on property taxes, try to make Minot a more business friendly community, a be a town that people want to live in.”
