Hukun provided his responses via email. “I live in downtown Fargo. Downtown living makes everything accessible and convenient! I love taking my kids to Lindenwood, and enjoy the food at Rugsan on 13th Avenue. I also like shopping at West Acres.” He has deep ties to the Fargo community, and he plans to use his talents to serve the citizens of Fargo from the mayoral office.
He has been positively affecting the Fargo community for years. The strong relationships he has built within the community have all urged him to run for mayor.
“I’ve had multiple people ask me to run. And after conversations with friends and family, I decided I had a chance to put my expertise to work as mayor. My expertise is in finding good jobs for people and I’ve seen a lot of success in the community organizing work that I’ve done. I want to continue that work by creating a department of workforce development within the city.”
Based on his professional history, Hukun has extensive experience with statewide housing indicatives, worldwide economic initiatives, and local humanitarian work. He is the founder of a nonprofit with offices in Fargo, North Dakota and in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which provides support to vulnerable communities in the form of skills development and economic empowerment.
“I believe a city is only as successful as its least fortunate residents. In my first term as mayor, I will have ended special assessments, and invested in housing for the homeless. I will also have created a workforce development department to connect employers and job seekers. Lastly, I will have opened free public transit for job seekers and homeless individuals.”
His webpage states: Jobs for the jobless. Homes for the homeless. Hope for the hopeless.
Hukun has been doing good work for years and years, and his mayoral platform is an extension of that purposeful work in the City of Fargo. A forward thinker, he is focused on building a better workforce to support the citizens of Fargo and the health of the city as a whole.
“I want kids to have the same opportunity I’ve had. I’ve been very fortunate to have so many successes in my life and I want to give future generations as many opportunities to succeed as possible.”
