Winners, losers react to Elkhart election

Rod Roberson, the Democratic mayor-elect of Elkhart, watches promising results with his wife and youngest daughter on election night, shortly before his victory over Republican Dave Miller was confirmed.

ELKHART — Republicans lost their 7-2 majority on the Elkhart City Council in Tuesday's municipal election, which some said was a sort of referendum on this council's Tolson Center decisions.

Three Republicans, all of whom voted in favor of defunding and thereby closing the center in 2018, lost their seats. That means Democrats will hold a 5-4 majority come January.

Wonder how a mayor who can't manage his own personal finances will manage public finances ......


Quick correction - Alex Holtz is the high school math teacher, I am an attorney.
