A few residents of Bettendorf's Third Ward filled a vacant seat on the city council Tuesday. They chose Bill Connors to fill the un-expired term of Debe LaMar who died last fall.
Connors ended with 158 votes, or 55 per cent, with Tom Luton a distant second with 51 votes, or 18 per cent. Just 5 1/2 per cent of the registered voters in the Third Ward turned out.
Connors is a former director of community development for Bettendorf, and the seat will be up for regular election in November.
