A Dixon city councilman and planning commissioner were triumphant Wednesday following Tuesday’s city council elections.
With all precincts counted, incumbent Scott Pederson kept his seat in District 1 while Commissioner Jim Ernest gained a new title in District 2.
“I’m doing great,” Pederson said Wednesday. “I’m just very grateful and very pleased that it turned out the way it did. It was a group and team effort.”
Now the work begins, he said, as Dixon’s next four years will be big.
He pointed to a new housing development in the southeast part of the city and development on the northeast side.
