Tri-City HeraldNovember 5, 2013 

Voters decided against returning Bryan Robinson to a leadership position in Benton City.

Incumbent Mary Lettau was leading Tuesday night in the contest for the city council seat she was appointed to fill in 2012.

She had 269 votes, or 77 percent of the votes counted for Position 2, and Robinson had 80 votes, or 23 percent.

In the second Benton City council race, Desiree Heninger decided not to run after filing.

Linda Lehman received 216 votes, or 66 percent, and Heninger received 111, or 34 percent.

Lettau, a billing specialist with an engineering firm, said during the campaign that she wanted to continue to make it easier for businesses to come to Benton City and to stay there.

She favors limited government and said the city should use its tax money wisely and live within its means.

Robinson served a controversial term as mayor from 2004-07. His term included two unsuccessful attempts to recall him from office and five days in jail on a conviction of giving a false or misleading statement to police about a fight with a neighbor.
