PAT: A Mayor for the multitudes
Park Rapids' incoming mayor is not ashamed of being a working stiff, a blue-collar guy, a regular Joe in a sweatshirt.
Those are his constituents, the ones who urged him to run. Pat Mikesh squeaked out an election victory over incumbent mayor Nancy Carroll by 11 votes.
"Citizens wanted a change," he said.
He was sworn into office Tuesday night and is itching to get to work.
First things first, though.
