LINCOLN, N.D. (AP) - The mayor of Lincoln has been ousted in a recall vote.

Unofficial results from Tuesday’s election show that residents of the community near Bismarck voted 300-78 to have 50-year-old challenger Gerald Wise take over as mayor from 68-year-old Bob Johnston.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1TuaBPx ) that a citizen committee forced the recall election after numerous disagreements between Johnston and the City Council.

Wise says he wants to move forward. Johnston says he wishes the community the best. He was in his final year in office and had not planned to seek re-election.
