It was a tight race for the vacant Ward 2 City Council seat in Marshalltown. When the votes were tallied, Gabe Isom had a two vote 96 to 94 margin over Bob Untiedt in the five person contests. Isom says he is thankful for the support and going into yesterday’s election did feel like a bit of an underdog.
As of last report, one absentee ballot had yet to arrive at the Marshall County Auditor’s office. Untiedt was also considering asking for a recount.
