DIXON – City Council incumbent Dennis Considine and former Councilman Chris Bishop came out ahead in Tuesday’s election.
Four candidates competed for two 4-year terms on the Dixon City Council. Considine had 704 votes (30.6%) and Bishop had 571 votes (24.82%) against incumbent Ryan Marshall’s 386 votes (16.78%) and Ben Nagy’s 469 votes (20.38%).
Candidate Seth Wiggins previously withdrew from the race, but his name was still on the ballot, and he received 171 votes (7.43%).
Considine, who’s retired after decades of working in local retail and beauty supply, was elected in 2017 and also served one term as commissioner under the city’s previous form of government.
Bishop, a teacher at Reagan Middle School and the head wrestling coach at Dixon High School, was elected to a 2-year term on the council in 2015. He decided not to run for re-election in 2017, but joined the Dixon Plan Commission in 2019.
Marshall owns The Stables bar in downtown Dixon, and was elected to the council in 2017.
Nagy is a financial service representative at Country Financial in Dixon, and served a partial term on the Dixon Park Board from April 2015 to July 2016.
