Both women were re-elected. Lyons received 129 votes for a total of 40.31%, and Bailey received 142 votes for a total of 44.38%.
Lyons did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but she has told Community Impact Newspaper she will work to ensure businesses continue to locate to Clear Lake Shore, make sure residents receive the best services possible, and be a good steward of the city’s finances.
Bailey also did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Newcomer Ralph Kliza was the third candidate running for either of the at-large council positions. He received 49 votes for a total of 15.31%.
Council Member Kurt Otten ran unopposed for Clear Lake Shores mayor, leaving his seat open now that he has been elected mayor. He previously told Community Impact Newspaper the City Council would appoint someone, possibly Kliza, to the seat at a later date.
