Primary in Davenport's Third Ward

davenport_3rd_ward_map.jpg

Some residents of Davenport will take the first step on Tuesday  to fill a vacancy on the city council. A primary will be held in the Third Ward, and there are 6 names on the ballot.

They're hoping to replace Bill Boom who resigned in April following his guilty plea in federal court to lying to a grand jury.

The two top finishers in the primary will advance to the general election on July 11th.

Polls will be open in the Third Ward on Tuesday from 7 am until 8 pm.

The six candidates are Andrew Arnold, Barry Donald, Joe Heinrichs, Marion Meginnis, Ursula Becky Peters, and Carlton Wills. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
