Incumbent Winamac City Councilwoman Judy Heater will serve a four-year term.
She got 36 votes to Rudy DeSabatine’s 25 on the first ballot during Thursday night’s Republican Party Convention. Winamac will not need to hold a November municipal election, as there are not any contested races.
Heater was elected to the council in March of 2014 to fill the remainder of James DeArmond’s term. She previously served 16 years as Winamac Clerk-Treasurer prior to her retirement from that job four years ago.
