MASON CITY, Iowa - Voters in Wards 2 and 4 went to the polls Tuesday to decide who will be representing them on the Mason City City Council in a runoff election. Here are the unofficial results:

Ward 2
Troy Levenhagen: 195     33.6%
Will Symonds:     385     66.4%

Ward 4
John Jaszewski:      367     57.2%
Matthew Marquardt: 275     42.8%

These positions went to a runoff election today because neither received the necessary 50 percent of the vote in the November election.

We spoke to both candidates after the results were posted about what they think they can add to the city council.

"We have been trying to add younger families to the city, so why not vote one in to city council?" said Symonds. " I have a  younger view on things and  I'll say less jaded view and more optimistic. I think that we can we can move Mason City forward."

"With 12 years of experience under my belt, it makes, I think, I've been through a lot of different situations that the councils go through," said Jaszewski. "The biggest one is the upcoming selection of a new city administrator, and I've done it three times on the council."
