Bruderheim residents voted to re-elect Karl Hauch for a second term as mayor.
Hauch (224 votes) beat out Leroy Maier (52 votes).
"I'm thankful that the residents of Bruderheim have elected me back in as mayor and I promise to do as good a job as I possibly can and carry on with the drive for sustainability for our community."
Hauch was quick to commend those who ran for office in Bruderheim.
"Thanks and congratulations to all who ran in the election, it's challenging at times and a little unnerving when you stick your neck out and try to do something that you haven't done before and they all ran a good, clean campaign."
The mayor-elect felt quite comfortable heading into election day, but was still a bit cautious.
He's heard from residents the new council's mandate will include meeting more needs and working on services, minimizing tax load on residents and business, policing, seniors needs as well as affordable housing.
The new council's first meeting is on October 25 at 7:00 p.m. at the Bruderheim Fire Hall.
