Ross wins Superior mayoral race

The weather, undoubtedly, played a role in voter turnout Tuesday, but when the ballots were cast, incumbents were resoundingly sent back to serve another term.

The weather, undoubtedly, played a role in voter turnout Tuesday, but when the ballots were cast, incumbents were resoundingly sent back to serve another term.

In Superior's mayor's race, Dave Ross faced a challenge from businesswoman Carol Reasbeck, a former city councilor and School Board member. Ross walked away from Tuesday's election carrying nine of the city's 10 voting districts and 62 percent of the ballots cast for mayor.

After losing a month in the campaign, Reasbeck said she had little doubt the distraction of caring for her 97-year-old mother, who died one month ago, played a role in not being able to reach out to as many voters as she would have liked before the election.

In spite of the loss, she has guarded optimism about the city's future.

"If they (Ross and city councilors) carry through on some of the issues we brought up during the campaign ... like economic development" Reasbeck said the city will be OK.

Voters also returned Councilors Nick Milroy and Esther Dalbec to office. Councilors Tom Bridge, Jackie Stenberg and Chuck Hendry were unopposed in Tuesday's election.
