Despite the weather, voters made their way to Johnson County polls for a special election. On Tuesday, John Etheredge, of Kalona, was elected to the vacant seat on the Johnson County Board of Supervisors. The seat opened after Sally Stutsman was elected to the Iowa House of Representatives last fall.
Etheredge tells KCII News he’s thankful for the voters, precinct election officials and the auditor’s office staff who braved the winter weather to make the election happen. He notes this is the first time a republican has been elected to the board since 1958.
The new supervisor will be sworn in Monday.
