Special Election in Nashua was a Nail Biter

Nashua, IA – A special election was held in Nashua last week to fill two vacant City Council seats. Two council members, Kyle Lane and Brenda Roberts, had resigned late in 2017.

The election came down to one vote. Former Mayor of Nashua, Angie Dietz, received 83 votes while Hal Kelleher was chosen to fill the second seat with 73 votes. Rolland Cagley just missed the cut with 72 votes.

Kristen Nosbisch was originally selected to fill the one vacant position this past fall, but some residents of Nashua had opposed this. They put together some signatures for the special election to take place.

The Chickasaw County Board of Supervisors were finalizing the results at their Monday morning meeting. The two terms will run through Dec. 31, 2019.
