Incumbents top challengers throughout northern Dakota County
Tuesday's election left the makeup of most municipal bodies very much the same in northern Dakota County, except for West St. Paul.
The St. Paul suburb will have a new mayor come January, unseating John Zanmiller who's served in the city's top spot since 2005. A Hennepin County Corrections career probation/parole officer, Zanmiller also served on the council for two years prior to his mayorship.
Changes coming to Shoreview and Vadnais Heights city councils
Many Bulletin-area incumbents were re-elected following this year's election Nov. 4.
All incumbent representatives on the federal and state levels will maintain their seats.
