Coulee Dam votes mean new leadership


There will be a new mayor and two new council members in Coulee Dam, all defeating incumbents, vote totals as of last Friday show.

The new mayor will be Gregory Wilder, who defeated longtime Mayor Quincy Snow, 231-107.

New council members will be Gayle Swagerty who defeated incumbent Karl Hjorten, 206-104; and Duane Johnson, who won over Andrew Trader, 226-83.

All take office in January.

The three new leaders had joined in the effort to derail the Coulee Dam wastewater treatment plant project seeking a delay and possible relocation.

They had argued that Coulee Dam residents did not have ample time to comment on the project and that the plant remodeling plan was flawed and much too costly.
