Fulton Voters Pick 3 New Aldermen

Voters reshaped Fulton’s Common Council Tuesday night.

Republican Tom Kenyon ran unopposed in the 1st Ward, on a night when three current members chose not to run for new terms.  Aldermen Dave Guyer, Bob Weston and Russ Hayden were not on the ballot.

In Guyer’s 2nd Ward, the outcome is uncertain.  Results posted to the county’s website show only four votes among candidates John Hansen and Dan Knopp, two v otes apiece.

The other two vacancies have more certain outcomes.

Democrat Pete Franco, the retired deputy police chief of Fulton, will take the 3rd Ward reins from retiring longtime Alderman Weston.  He beat Timothy Crandell 432 to 173.

And Democrat Kim Roy returns to the Common Council, beating Johnathan Weldin 109 – 97.

Aldermen Daryl Hayden and Jay Foster won reelection by large margins.

The Council stands at 3 Democrats and 2 Republicans, with the 2nd Ward race yet to be decided.
