Previous Delavan mayor to take vacant city council seat
DELAVAN—The Delavan City Council decided Monday to fill First District Alderman Mary O'Connor's vacant seat with Ronald Henriott, who previously was Delavan mayor.
O'Connor announced her resignation at the council's July 8 meeting after deciding to move to Janesville after a recent marriage. Henriott will serve until the term expires in April 2015.
Henriott served as an alderman from 1988 to 1994 before becoming mayor until 2001. He was the only candidate to submit an application for the position.
“Ron is well-experienced to handle that position, and he was the only candidate. There's not a lot coming forward from that district,” Second District Alderman Bruce DeWitt said. “It's disappointing.”
Henriott expressed interested in running for re-election once his term expires, DeWitt said.
