Two candidates face off in Havre's Ward 1
A Havre businessman is facing a former government public affairs specialist in the Havre City Council election in Ward 1.
Republican Russ Luke, 43, owner of Pizza Pro, is running against Democrat Pam Hillery, also 43, in the Nov. 4 election.
The two both said declining revenue for the city budget is the biggest issue facing the city.
Luke said he isn't sure what the best way to fund the budget is, but he is generally opposed to raising taxes.
"There really is no simple solution," he said. "I don't know (the best solution) without getting in to look at different avenues to bring money in."
