Bernie Dardis has been called Mr. West Fargo. Soon he will be called West Fargo’s Mr. Mayor. In a changing of the guard at City Hall, Dardis will replace Rich Mattern, who has headed West Fargo city government for 16 years following four years on the commission. We commend Mattern for his dedicated leadership over a period that has seen unprecedented growth in West Fargo, and we welcome Dardis to the helm.
