It's election day in Waterloo's First Ward. Margaret Klein and Tom Powers are running for the City Council seat left vacant by David Jones. Jones resigned back in April when he accepted a new job.



Jones' departure has left several tied votes on several key issues in Waterloo, including filling vacant positions and applying for a white-water course grant.


Klein is a retired Cedar Valley Catholic Schools worker and Power is a retired city firefighter and is currently employed at VGM. The polls are open today from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.
