City Council First Ward Lynch

The Dubuque City Council met in special session Monday and by a 4-2 vote appointed former councilman Kevin Lynch to the Office of First Ward City Council. Second Ward Councilwoman Laura Rousell said Lynch’s experience in the ward is a huge plus. Mayor Roy Buol agreed, noting the fact that Lynch would not be running in the next regular election which will be held on November 2nd, 2021, it would free up the spot for the other candidates to run. There were 10 candidates for the position and Council members  Danny Sprank and Brad Cavanagh voted for Susan Farber in the first two rounds of voting. The vacancy was created by the resignation of First Ward Council Member Brett Shaw.
