Democrat Cathy Gross defeated Republican Matt McKean in Monticello’s mayoral race Tuesday, taking home more than 56 percent of the final tally.
Gross, a long-time resident who currently serves as the city’s ADA and Title IX coordinator, says she was cautiously optimistic.
“I know and love and work and play with the people here," Gross says. "They know me. They know I have the experience and the leadership to keep us moving.”
