He was mayor of Hampton for several years, then was defeated four years ago by Paye Flomo.
Now, Timothy Skog will become mayor again as he defeated Flomo 196 to 117.

DFL gubernatorial candidate Mark Dayton continues to lead the state-wide voting for the state’s highest-elected position – even after the recount – but in Dakota County, it is a different story. It was that way on Election Day, Nov. 2, and continues that way after the votes were recounted last week.

Dakota County Sheriff Dave Bellows was elected to a full four-year term Tuesday, defeating Apple Police Sgt. Mitch Scott by a 54- to 45-percent margin. Bellows earned 67,377 votes to Scott’s 56,216 votes.

And Republicans took control of both legislative chambers from Democrats in a stunning turnaround.
