Shawnee Has A New Mayor

The unofficial final results are in and it looks like Michelle Distler will be Shawnee's new mayor.  And, she will also become the first woman to be elected to that position.  

After the primary election many people commented on the high road that both Michelle Distler and her opponent Dan Pflumm took towards each other.This will prove beneficial to the city as Dan Pflumm still retains his council seat.  They both deserve to be congratulated for their hard work in getting their messages out, and in the manner that they conducted their campaigns

In Ward I Jim Neighbor was able to hold on to his seat and fend off first time challenger Ben Terrill.  Don't count Ben out.  Look for him to be involved in city happenings going forward.

In Ward II Eric Jenkins defeated the incumbent Neal Sawyer.  Eric will bring some well deserved freshness to the council.

Stephanie Meyer, running unopposed in Ward III will be serving a full term, and Mickey Sandifer, also running unopposed, in Ward IV will be returned to his seat.  But, there were 34 write-in votes in Ward IV  :-)  :-)
