GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Grand Island Mayor Roger Steele spent part of Election Night overseeing Tuesday night’s city council meeting.

It’s something he’s been doing for the past four years after taking over the role of mayor from former GISH soccer coach Jeremy Jensen.

He ran unopposed in 2018, but this time around, he has two people hoping to take his spot. They are businesswoman Julie Wright and Central Nebraska Regional Airport operations security manager Doug Brown.
