GREEN BAY, Wis. (WTAQ) - Changes coming to the Green Bay City Council -- four seats will be in the hands of newcomers, while Green Bay's longest-serving alderman keeps his.
Alderman Guy Zima is reelected to his 18th term on the council, defeating challenger Mike Iwinski. Zima says it was a tough fight, but...
"Those wonderful people that I've worked for came out for me tonight and I'm extremely gratified," Zima said.
Zima won on a 61-to-39 percent margin. Iwinski says the results were similar to past elections.
"There are a lot of complacent voters out there and getting them to go out and vote seems to be the biggest challenge," Iwinski said.
Meantime, some other incumbents did not fare as well. Ald. John Vander Leest lost to Brian Danzinger, Shae Sortwell defeated incumbent Ald. Dan Piton, and Ald. Tom Weber loses his seat to Patrick Buckley.
The 6th district will also get a new Alderperson in Ned Dorff, as Celestine Jeffreys joins the Green Bay School Board.
Other incumbents will keep their seats on the Council.
