While the vote suggested otherwise, Iola Mayor Jon Wells insisted Tuesday his decisive re-election bid was anything but easy.

“It looks easy at the end,” he said, “but we fought hard.”

Wells counted the number of public events he attended in recent weeks and months as part of his re-election bid, and a vigorous “get out the vote” campaign as key elements to his strong showing.
