Letter: Here's precisely what Mayor Walaker said

I  appreciate Dennis Papke’s thoughts (letter, June 16) as to Mayor Dennis Walaker’s remarks “I can’t lose,” which were quoted in The Forum. As Paul Harvey once said, “There are always three sides to the story.” I was there that evening, and it had just been announced that Walaker was going to win the election. The reporters asked Walaker how he felt about the victory. The mayor said, “I can’t lose. If I win, I will be the mayor of Fargo for four more years; if I lose, I get to spend more time with my family.” That is the true quote with no politics involved.
