STOCKTON -- Citizens in the town of Stockton have made their opinions known at the polls. On Tuesday night, voters sent incumbent Mayor Dan Rydalch packing.
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, challenger Mark Whitney has won the town's mayoral race with over 75 percent of the vote.
Many residents in Stockton had said they wanted Rydalch ousted after they learned he fired a police officer for giving his son a ticket. That officer was later reinstated by the Stockton City Council.
