Councilwoman Tiffany Langer statement following lawsuit filed against the City Council dealing with her residency

ABERDEEN, S.D.(Press Release)- Earlier this week the Aberdeen City Council was sued by two residents dealing with the issue of Councilwoman Tiffany Langer’s residency in the Southeast District in Aberdeen.

Councilwoman Tiffany Langer has released the following statement:

“I’d like to publicly address the lawsuit that has been brought against the council to remove me from office, based on residency.

The lawsuit has no merit.  I am thankful we will have the opportunity to resolve this matter in court and put it to rest.  It is baseless, and we will win.  That being said, I will be offering no further comment on it as this is now a pending legal matter.

To me, one could reasonably assume, that the choice to pursue legal action against an entire council, versus approaching me to clear up concerns, is just noise to distract from the actual issues going on with the council and the upcoming election.

I will continue going about my duties as your Councilwoman.  Today I focus on filling potholes, getting roads paved, potential crosswalk issues to keep your children safe, solutions to our ongoing water issues, and maybe even some bike trail conversations!  These are the issues that matter, and what the people of Aberdeen have told me they are concerned about.

Have a beautiful day Aberdeen!”
