Some residents of Bettendorf can help fill a vacancy on the city council Tuesday. A special election will be held in the Third Ward to fill the unexpired term of Debe LaMar who died in November.
The four candidates are:
- Bill Connors, former director of community development for Bettendorf,
- Richard "Dick" Frantz, a retired machinist from the Rock Island Arsenal,
- Tom Luton, a retired teacher and former member of the school board,
- and Don Wells, a member of the city's parks and recreation board.
Two polling sites will be open - at the First Baptist Church and Bettendorf Library - and the hours will be 7 am until 8 pm.
The unexpired term ends this fall when the Third Ward seat will be up for regular election.
