James Stone Wins Henderson Special Election For Seat On City Council

James Stone defeated Scott Schondelmeyer, 30-18, in a special election last Tuesday, Aug. 2, for a vacant seat on the Henderson City Council.

The seat was previously occupied by Charles Yochum, who resigned earlier this year.

The Henderson City Council chose to hold a special election to fill the vacant seat instead of making an appointment.
