Keota residents will see busy November ballot

It will be a busy election season for the City of Keota, as voters will decide between three separate races. Longtime incumbent Mayor Tony Cansler will be challenged for Mayor by Nick Mahan. Cansler was overwhelmingly re-election in 2017.

On the city council side, voters will whittle down a field of four candidates, for two city council positions. Incumbent Councilor Matt Greiner will see another term on the council. Also running for city council is Keota School Board member Jim Tinnes, Ryan Fagan, and Curt Burroughs. Incumbent Scott Westendorf had not filed to run for re-election by the September 19 candidate filing deadline.

Keota residents will also decide the fate of a Keota Community Pool proposal. An over $1 Million bond issue will be put to the voters for their approval. Because property taxes will be used to pay for the bond issue, a supermajority of 60 percent will be required for the bond issue to pass.
