Several area communities hold municipal elections Tuesday


Gary Matthews and News Staff - April 11, 2018

STURGIS, S.D. - Voters in Sturgis did not have to cast a ballot in this year's municipal election -- but voters in several area communities did have races.

The four candidates running for city council spots in Sturgis all ran unopposed.

In Whitewood, voters chose Bruce White for City Council, defeating Susan Ruckdaschel 16 to 11.

In Lead, there was a race for city commission, which was won by Joel Edgar with 147 and the incumbent Donald Mack with 142. Beth Fitzgerald came in third with 139. The vote count was close and there could be a recount.

In Newell, there will be a new mayor. Kenneth Wetz picked up 149 votes, defeating the incumbent Mike Keolker, who garnered just 39.
