This election year was riddled with attempts by the Muscatine City Council to remove Mayor Broderson.  Back in January the council voted to request the City Attorney to start the process in removing Mayor Diana Broderson from office.

In May the council voted to remove her from office, but a judge later reinstated Mayor Broderson.

When it came to the elections for open Muscatine City Council seats, two of the council members who voted to impeach Mayor Broderson were defeated in their bid for re-election.

Incumbent Scott Natvig lost to challenger Kelcey Brackett, while council member and Ward Two candidate Michael Rehwaldt lost to challenger Osmond Malcolm, who had 71% of the vote.

Nadine Brockert was named winner of the of the Ward Four election with 49% of the vote.
