Elected to the City Council on Tuesday, Nov. 8 were Jack Edmonds, the former Mille Lacs County Board member and Princeton Planning Commission member, and Jeff Reynolds, the chairman of the city’s planning commission.

The election of Edmonds and Reynolds means 14-year city council Victoria Hallin has been defeated. Dick Dobson, another 7-term council member, chose not to run. Susan Bialka was also unsuccessful in earning a council seat.

Edmonds was the top vote-getter with 941 votes. Reynolds had 812 votes.

Bialka, a newcomer to the Princeton political scene, had 718 votes. Hallin finished last with 707 votes.
