Fargo Mayoral Candidates: Tim Mahoney

Last Word | June 3rd, 2022

Tim has been the mayor for seven years and the deputy mayor for six.

He is from south Fargo, and he's enjoyed seeing it grow in his many years in the neighborhood. He spends a lot of his free time in our local parks and attends many of the different public events throughout the city. In particular, he enjoys visiting Broadway Square in Downtown Fargo. During the summer, you can find him at the Farmer’s Market, mingling with the people of Fargo and enjoying all the great vendors.

He also spends a lot of time in the various restaurants around town and enjoys sampling food from all around the world. His longtime favorite food-of-choice is the cinnamon rolls that The Shack on Broadway sells (and we should probably all go sample those asap).

Tim’s website has a lot of information highlighting his medical career, his years of service to Fargo, and his lovely family. His priorities are focused around showing Fargo as a regional leader, smart growth for the future, housing, flood protection, outdoor health, and citizen engagement.

We spoke for awhile, and Tim was very enthusiastic to share how Fargo is growing as a community. He sees planned growth as the key to the city developing in an informed direction. He spoke of the upcoming Housing Study and how that will help influence the city’s future growth. Making sure Fargo is ready to weather any event–be it flooding or drought–is high on his priority list.

He has lived in Fargo for a long time and has decades of fond memories. He has been really proud to watch Fargo develop into a city that people from all walks of life are proud to call home. He foresees the city continuing to grow over the next 4 years.

Tim wants to spend the next four years listening to the voice of the public because he said that he gains a lot of valuable insights from everyone’s different ideas. As the current mayor, he likes having an open door for people to come share ideas with him.

Tim spoke very enthusiastically about one big idea that crossed his desk: Grand Farm —an organization that is focused on creating the prototype for the first fully autonomous farm. He spoke of how he envisions Fargo as an epicenter for this new innovative farming practice that will bring many local benefits and have positive effects on a statewide, nationwide, and global level.

As the only candidate who has been the Mayor of Fargo before, Tim’s campaign page also lists his accomplishments as the mayor.
