No need to use the “m” word, he’s ‘still just Dave’
River Falls has another mayor in its midst: Dave Hovel, city building inspector who beat the incumbent (717-572) in last month’s election to become mayor of Prescott.
Hovel said he admires River Falls Mayor Dan Toland’s easygoing, down-to-earth ways.
“Someone greeted him as mayor and he said, ‘Don’t call me mayor, my name is Dan,’” Hovel said. “That’s me, too. Don’t look at the title. I’m still just Dave.”
