Winners: Smith, Redisch, Zemaitis

(ran West edition)

Incumbent Mayor William B. Smith was re-elected to another term in office, defeating Ron Sneed.

Smith received applause, handshakes and pats on the back as he walked into Town Hall after the votes were announced Tuesday night.

"I'm glad it's over," Smith said. "I'm going to continue what we have been doing for the past seven years _ continuing to try to make Kenneth City better."

Newcomer Philip Redisch and incumbent Teresa Zemaitis won the two Council seats available. Two-term incumbent Al Carrier is out of a job.

"I've done a lot of good things," Redisch said. "I'm an easy person to talk to. I listen to people all the time."

Zemaitis, the youngest council member, says her age provides a voice for a growing number of young families with children.

She wants to finish working with the grant to improve the playground at the community hall.

"I want to get started on a small park and see if we can make it a safe place, too," Zemaitis said.

Smith has served on the Town council for seven years. Smith said he wanted to finish work on Kenneth City's drainage system.
