Petersen wins Liberty election

LIBERTY — In a special called election with a small turnout, former Liberty city councilman Brian Petersen was re-elected to council last week.
Petersen beat out Mac Gravley in the election, which saw only 36 ballots cast out of a possible 1,828. Petersen garnered 22 votes, while Gravley received 13, with one write-in.
The election filled the vacant seat on council recently opened when councilman Eric Boughman stepped down after his daughter Emma was tragically killed after being struck by a vehicle earlier this year.
