Horace Councilmember Landstrom thankful for citizen support after prevailing in recall election

(Fargo, ND) -- Horace City Council Member Stephanie Landstrom is commenting on prevailing in the recall attempt against her. 

"First of all I am just so thankful for the support of the residents and their confidence in my leadership for the city and for believing in me. I'm just looking forward to getting back to the business of the city," said Landstrom, while speaking with WDAY Radio.  

Landstrom defeated challenger Realtor Arlin Fisher, garnering roughly 3 times the number of votes secured by Fisher. 

Landstrom says Fisher describing her as "anti-growth" was unfair. 

Fisher challenged Landstrom in part because of her opposition to tax abatements for new homes. 

Landstrom says abatements are not necessary to spur development in the city.
