Jim Bunger released a statement Wednesday morning saying, "I would like to thank
all of the other candidates who ran for city council. It goes to show that
every one of us cares about our city and its citizens very deeply.
"I may have not been able to make it onto the city council at this time, but
please know that I will be continuing to fight for the working class citizens
of the city of Kearney."
He goes on to say that he will serve on board in Kearney that works to help low to middle income families.
"I appreciate every last vote that
was cast today whether it was for me or not and I wish to congratulate those
who have been elected," said Bunger.
