Pat Stone elected as Mayor of Waukon in December 5 run-off election

Voters in the city of Waukon elected a new mayor in the Tuesday, December 5 run-off election. That run-off election was necessary after the November 7 City Election did not yield a true winner based on none of the five candidates in that initial mayor's race receiving the necessary 50%+1 vote majority, pushing the top two vote-getters, Dwight Jones and Pat Stone, into the run-off election.
According to initial unofficial results released by the Allamakee County Auditor's Office December 5, those voters elected city government newcomer Pat Stone to the Waukon Mayor's office by a 395-236 final vote count. Stone's margin included an absentee vote margin of 83-49 and an election night tally of 312-187.
Stone will now assume the office of mayor, replacing outgoing mayor Duane DeWalle, who did not seek re-election to the mayor's seat this year. Stone will assume the office in January 2018.
