CEDAR FALLS, IA — Libertarian Rob Green defeated Cedar Falls businessperson LeaAnn Saul in a landslide to win an at-large Cedar Falls City Council seat in a runoff election Tuesday.

Unofficial totals show Green with 2,901 votes, or 70.5 percent. Green, a University of Northern Iowa Rod Library employee and former president of the Overman Park Neighborhood Association, will succeed Nick Taiber, who did not seek re-election. Green and Saul were thrown into a runoff after neither gained a majority in a three-way race in the Nov. 7 municipal election. “The messaging I used was a very positive, very issue-driven campaign,” Green said. “I listed exactly where I stand, I was honest and that attracted people.” Green supports some kind of balance among full-time police and firefighters and cross-trained public safety officers. Cedar Falls is the 13th largest city in Iowa via population and it is home to The University of Northern Iowa.
