Schwandt gains City Council seat

New Dillon City Councilperson Russ Schwandt, shortly after he was voted onto the Council on Wednesday night.

Russ Schwandt took over the empty Ward 2 seat at the Dillon City Council’s table on Wednesday evening after earning the five votes necessary to gain the appointment. The other two votes to fill the spot vacated in November by former City Councilperson Kevin Hodge went to Schwandt’s longtime colleague on the city’s Planning Board and Zoning Commission Ed Mooney.
