Doland wins special election, sworn in as supervisor

OSKALOOSA — The Mahaska County Board of Supervisors canvassed the special election held this past week for a seat on the board and Mark Doland was declared the winner.

Doland faced off against Tom Rielly for the seat vacated by Ken Rozenboom, who was elected to the Iowa Senate. Doland will finish out the final two years of Rozenboom’s term.

Doland had a 16-vote lead over Rielly after this past Tuesday’s vote, but the status of about 65 absentee ballots made the outcome too close to call. After the canvass Monday, Doland had 1,398 votes to Rielly’s 1,377 votes — a 21-vote margin of victory.

Doland took the oath of office from Judge Randy DeGeest at the end of the meeting.
