The man elected to be the new mayor of the City of Lake Lillian through write-in votes on Election Day has reportedly declined the position. There was no one running for mayor, but Kenneth Wittman was the top vote-getter for the post with 13 write-in votes, but apparently does not want the job. He is currently a Lake Lillian City Council member. The Council will now be required to appoint a new mayor from among the 4 city councilors during their meeting in January, and a new council member will then need to be appointed to fill the seat of whoever is appointed to be Lake Lillian Mayor. Current Mayor Ross Wittman did not seek re-election. The appointed council position will be placed on the ballot during the general election in 2 years to fill out the remaining 2 years of the term.
