RICHMOND — The City of Richmond elected a new mayor at Wednesday night’s meeting. Mike Mathiasen replaces Scott Kron who announced his resignation on Tuesday stating personal health reasons.

Mathiasen has been serving as the acting mayor for the past several years. The council decided to  appoint Mathiasen to the mayor’s seat instead of appointing a community member. City Administrator Martin Bode says Mathiasen was the obvious choice.
