New Kuna Mayor Greg Nelson and new City Council members Joe Stear and Briana Buban-Vonder Haar will be sworn in at tonight's City Council meeting.
Nelson won a majority in a three-way race, sweeping out of office Scott Dowdy, who had been mayor since being appointed in 2007 and winning an election in that year. Also swept out of office was Jeff Lang, who ran on a ticket with Dowdy and had been elected to the City Council with Dowdy in 2003. Outgoing City Council president Lisa Bachman did not seek re-election.
It will be interesting to see how Nelson follows up on his promise to make City Council meetings tighter and more professional.
The meeting is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 763 W. Avalon St. The public is invited.
