Byron's Mayor Ann Diercks has earned a second term.

Voters elected the mayor to four more years Nov. 6 after the incumbent received 70.28 percent of the vote (1,698 votes) to challenger David Sletten's 29.10% (703).

"I couldn't be more proud to be the mayor of this city," Diercks said. "I'm thankful for the support of all the people who supported me in this election."

Diercks said she expects the city of Byron will be more active in terms of projects in the future.

"I just think these next four years will be a very exciting," she said.

Diercks has worked at Mayo Clinic for the past 29 years and works in information technology. She grew up on a farm in rural Byron and has lived in the city for the past two decades. Prior to being elected mayor, Diercks spend 12 years on the city council.

For short term goals, Diercks recently noted the Frontage Road renovation, which will mostly start next year as well as a need for assisted living in the community.

For long term goals, she included a possible interchange for 10th Avenue and Highway 14.
