Enough of the mail-in ballots have been counted to confirm that Engen easily won the election over political newcomer Lisa Triepke. As of 10:00 p.m. Engen had over 56 percent of the votes, with his challenger Lisa Triepke at a little over 42 percent.

At his post-election victory celebration at The Public House, Engen said he was gratified that the voters chose to return him to office.

“I’m excited to be able to continue to do this job I love in the place I love,” Engen said. ‘We got to talk about a lot of issues and I learned a lot, and we’ve got some work to do.

It’s not easy, there are no simple solutions, but I heard it loud and clear, and we’ve got a job to do.”
