Special Election in Bettendorf

Mar 4, 2019

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.
