Election fills 3 city council spots


ELLIS -- The city of Ellis had an election Tuesday for city council.

John A. Walz, David R. McDaniel and Gary Luea won office, said Amy Burton, Ellis City clerk.

Donna J. Maskus, Ellis County clerk, said the unofficial results will be finalized Monday by the Ellis County Commission.

McDaniel said it was his understanding Mayor Lyle Johnston would fill a fourth open council position with the candidate who receieved the fourth most votes in the election. John Leiker resigned his position on the council earlier this year to accept a position with the city of Ellis. The appointee will serve Leiker's remaining term until April 2015.
