MASON CITY – Tim Latham has defeated Jay Urdahl in the District 1 Cerro Gordo Supervisor race. Latham, a Republican, defeated Urdahl, the Democratic incumbent, 3,644 to 3,220.

Latham was home Tuesday evening as the votes were tabulated and gave a TV interview after his victory was announced on the Cerro Gordo county website. His opponent, Jay Urdahl, who has served the county for 28 years, called to congratulate him. He was at the Prime N Wine restaurant with other Democrats, watching election results.

Latham told NIT that he was thankful for the voters who supported him.

“I just want to thank everyone who took the time to cast a vote for me,” Latham said. “It was a good election. I’d like to thank Jay Urdahl for his long-time service here in Cerro Gordo county.”

The Cerro Gordo Board of Supervisors is now all Republican, with Chris Watts also winning Tuesday over Phil Dougherty and Casey Callanan already elected.

Well the story I heard was way back in the day Tim shot a Terry Franks in the guts and Terry died. This was supposedly a dispute over a motorbike that Tim would not sell to Terry. Terry was joshin with Tim and Tim took it seriously and pulled out a shit gun and next you know Terry was shot in the gut. Is this really a true story? Tim was in jail for a while. This was a longtime ago. Tim was kinda living at his grandmother’s place after that incident. Just not sure what the real story is but Tim being a public official I would like to know the truth behind this story in history please.

The real story, only two people know for sure, and one is dead. “Did he shoot someone” well obviously, he did. Accident or on purpose. Terry Frank was a prick. I suggest you try and dig up the court/trial records on the case. From what I remember, Tim never went to prison, so I guess the jury/judge found him innocent. And why does it matter now, what are you trying to do, dig up dirt like the jackasses.

Congratulations Tim. I know you will do a great job.
