Cedar Rapids Gazette: Voters in Iowa’s second-largest city Tuesday elected Women Lead Change Chief Executive Officer Tiffany O’Donnell to lead change as the next mayor of Cedar Rapids, handily defeating TrueNorth employee Amara Andrews in a runoff. O’Donnell staved off any close competition from Andrews, emerging with 68 percent of the ballots cast, or 13,479 votes. Andrews had 6,358 votes, according to unofficial results with all precincts reporting. “It’s clear that it matters that everybody shares this vision of a better and brighter Cedar Rapids,” O’Donnell told a crowd of dozens of supporters. Now elected to the part-time role of mayor, which pays about $39,000 a year, O’Donnell will be only the third woman to have served in this position. The last female mayor was Kay Halloran, who left office in 2010. O’Donnell’s four-year term begins at noon Jan. 1.
