Gordon Fassett is the new mayor of Clutier after winning last week's election by a 60-6 margin over Phillip Clark Breja, according to unofficial results released by the Tama County Auditor's Office.

Fassett will replace outgoing mayor Ardene Cross. Four city council members were also voted into office on November 5. Barbara Baseman received 40 votes, Blake Pearson finished with 56, Linda Pearson tallied 61 and Krista Walker got 53 votes.

Public Measure B, which will reduce the number of members of the Board of Trustees of the Clutier Public Library from nine to seven, passed overwhelmingly by a vote of 61-4.

In Dysart, three slots were open, with the three sitting council members winning re-election. Tom Brant received 103 votes, Tim Glenn got 110 and Bret Hennessy finished with 104. Al Schafbuch failed to win a seat, compiling 70 votes.

Voter turnout was highest in Clutier, with 43.79 percent of eligible voters turning out to particpate in this year's election. 12.02 percent of Traer voters turned out, with 15.24 of Dysart residents voting.

In Traer, incumbent mayor Pete Holden ran unopposed, receiving 119 votes. The Traer City Council will welcome two new members in Stephen Foster and Josh Youel. Foster is the former high school principal and Youel is the current elementary principal. They received 110 and 111 votes, respectively.
