ELECTION CENTRAL: Bixby replaces Crook on council as Peak wins first election

Election 2011

Election 2011

April 6, 2011

A new face will be joining the Tonganoxie City Council.

Challenger Dennis Bixby and incumbent Bill Peak were elected to the council Tuesday, beating out incumbent Paula Crook, who was elected in 2007.

Bixby, a former construction project manager who now is self-employed, was the top vote-getter with 426, while Peak, who is retired from the U.S. Postal Service, had 420 and Crook, who works for Meals on Wheels, 356. The three candidates were vying for two seats.

Peak was elected for the first time Tuesday. Mayor Jason Ward appointed him in 2010 to fill the position previously held by Tom Putthoff, who resigned this past August.

Mayor Jason Ward ran unopposed Tuesday.

Results won’t be final until Leavenworth County Commissioners canvass the votes, a process set to start at 9 a.m. Friday at the Leavenworth County Courthouse.

Seriously...... Dennis Bixby voted in to be a council member? Dennis Bixby got fired from Vintage Park for being lazy. If he got fired from a job for being LAZY. What do you think he will do for the city? City is going to hell in a hand basket.
