City of Brookfield aldermen on Tuesday again voted 4th District Alderman Mark Nelson as Common Council president.
Nelson has been council president for the last two years and will serve another two-year term. One of his main responsibilities will be to work with new Mayor Steve Ponto to appoint Brookfield's 14 aldermen to various city commissions, committees and boards.
Nelson received seven votes from aldermen, while 1st District Alderman Dan Sutton received six. The council has 13 members now because a replacement for Ponto, who also represented District 4, has not yet been named.
In 2008, Sutton and Nelson deadlocked 7-7 in two rounds of voting before Sutton withdrew his name from consideration.
