Krahling Accepts Appointment as Mayor

Swearing in new mayor

The Sioux Center City Council has appointed seasoned community leader David Krahling to serve as mayor, filling the seat of the late Mayor Dennis Walstra.

As mayor, Krahling will preside over city council meetings and work with the council and city leaders to create a long-term vision for the community.

Krahling came to Sioux Center in 1984, taking a position teaching agriculture at Sioux Center Schools. He is married to Char and has worked the past 18 years at Interstates, where he is now in a role focusing on people development. Krahling previously served on the city council from 2006-2015. His appointment as mayor begins immediately.

“This is a daunting position to step into, even more so knowing the legacy Mayor Walstra has built here,” Krahling said. “Having had the opportunity to work with him, I will draw on that as well as my own experiences as I seek to lead in way that serves the citizens well.”

Krahling shared his great respect for the ongoing work of the Sioux Center city staff and council, and said the appointment to serve the community in this role is both humbling and exciting.

“We have an incredibly robust community with a diverse set of strengths and a history of progress through cooperation,” Krahling said. “Sioux Center is a great city of which to be mayor.”

Krahling was sworn in after the city council unanimously approved his appointment at the June 18 council meeting.

“Dave will bring a high level of leadership and understanding to the table,” said Mayor Pro Tem Randy Vreugdenhil. “His background and ability to see big picture will serve our community well.”
