Two candidates ask to be considered for Ward 2 vacancy
Monday night, the Newton City Council will consider two applicants for the now-vacant Ward 2 seat. Larry L. Johnson Sr. and Evelyn George both have applied to fill the seat once held by Mayor Mike Hansen.
Johnson is a retired USDA worker. He worked for the USDA for more than 36 years. While with the USDA, he was responsible for collecting data and made national markets reports. In those reports he supplied information such as transportation problems, supplies offered and purchases of meat.
He also served on a voluntary Board of Directors of USDA Federal Credit Union for nine years, which was responsible for deciding on interest and loan rates used by the Credit Union to serve members. He also served as President of the Warren Co. Corvette Club; he currently is its website manager.
