FARGO — Lenny Tweeden, who said he has run for a seat on the Fargo City Commission four times, has announced he suspended his campaign Wednesday, April 13, only two days after the filing deadline.

Tweeden said in an email that he has been receiving infusion treatments for cancer at the Roger Maris Cancer Center.

Tweeden has been battling cancer over the past year with two surgeries and radiation.

In a follow-up email sent Wednesday, April 20, Tweeden said he resumed his campaign on Monday for the June 14 election.

In an interview with The Forum, Tweeden said his focus as commissioner would be adding more affordable housing to the city, helping low-income senior citizens stay in their homes by reducing property taxes and building a hotel with a parking ramp just south of Fargo’s Hector International Airport.
