As results came in on election night, Gordon said he's excited to work with his fellow council members, no matter the makeup of the dais. As he prepares for his first term, Gordon said one of this top priorities will be improving residents' perception of its city leaders by explaining what's behind council decisions.
"I think the biggest priority going in is repairing the image of the council," Gordon said. "Right now there seems to be an image — it's incorrect, but still out there — of not being communicative, doing things hidden and behind the scenes. One of my main priorities for this year is trying to fix that."
There were a total of 864 votes tallied, with 63.9% of voters, or 552 total, for Gordon and 36.1%, or 312 total, for his opponent, Don Carlson.
"I'm really excited at the turnout," Gordon said.
