Howe to Fill Vacant Valparaiso City-Council Seat

The Valparaiso Republican Party Caucus has chosen an at-large council member to take the place of departing councilwoman Trista Hudson. The Times reports Holly Howe was unanimously elected by precinct committee members as the lone candidate seeking the seat. Howe will serve the remaining six months of the term after Hudson stepped down last month. Howe will be on the ballot in November against Democrat Diana Reed for the Valparaiso 1st District City Council seat.
