Hans Walther has returned to the Stevens Point Common Council.
Walther was elected on Monday night to fill the vacancy left by Joanne Suomi, the 2nd District Councilwoman who passed away in September.
Walther will fill the seat until April, when the spot comes up for reelection. Walther said he did not yet know if he would be interested in running for a full term next spring.
Walther had previously served on the Council between 1995 and 2010, when he was bested by Suomi. He also has previous experience on the Portage Co. Board of Supervisors.
Other candidates for the position included Denise Mrozek, Glenn Aavang and Richard Spreda. Spreda received one vote and Mrozek received two votes for the seat, while the remaining votes went to Walther.
