The future of the city is in good hands.
The ballots have been counted! We have two new city councilmen. Rob Ronayne took the northeast districts and Alan Johnson won by a substantial margin in the southwest. Each beat out one other contender in his district on the June 4 election. Hats off to exiting councilmen Tom Agnitsch and Jeff Mitchell. Thanks for your service to Aberdeen, gentlemen! The swearing-in ceremony for both Ronayne and Johnson is in early July. These council races were the only items on the ballot which is probably why only 18.2% in the northeastern precincts voted and only 8.4% voted in the southwest. These two fine men will no doubt keep things rolling for the Hub City. //
