Streyle appointed to temporary Council seat

Roscoe Streyle has been appointed as the newest member of the Minot City Council.

Streyle was chosen on July 18 from a list of 13 people who applied for the temporary position, which will serve on the Council until the Nov. 8 election. He was supported by Mayor Tom Ross and Council members Paul Pitner, Lisa Olson, and Mark Jantzer. Council members Carrie Evans and Stephan Podrygula voted against Streyle’s appointment, citing concerns with previous disparaging statements he made about local and national public health officials and people who disagreed with him politically.

Streyle ran unsuccessfully for the City Council in 2020. After his appointment, he fills the seat vacated by Ross when he was elected mayor in June; the seat’s term expires in June 2024.

“I’ve had some heart-to-hearts with him and you can’t change the past,” Ross said of Streyle. “You can only build on the future, and the future is bright. I’m going to support him because I think we need him at the table to fast track flood protection, along with his expertise when it comes to tearing apart and working through a budget and economic development issues.”

Streyle served from 2011-2018 in the North Dakota Legislature as a state representative from Minot, including a seat on the Appropriations Committee. He recently ran for election again, but was defeated.

He is a senior vice president at United Community Bank in Minot, working in business development and commercial lending. He and his wife, Kristi, have three children.
