It will be Decker’s first term on the council. The retired military professional said he is excited to work for the people of Dickinson.

“I’ve been attending the commission meetings and kind of getting myself up to speed on some of the things that are happening,” he said. “I have a pretty decent feel for what’s going on in the city. “A lot of work has started in my first term that I want to see through, so I’m very pleased to get re-elected to carry on with all of the important tasks that we have ahead of us.”

He said the commission is “very strong.”

Dukart has previously served two two-year terms, though not consecutively.
