25-year-old becomes new Merrill mayor

Posted:
MERRILL, Wis. (WAOW) -

Derek Woellner, 25, defeated incumbent Bill Bialecki in the Merrill mayoral race.

Results were reported Tuesday night.

In an interview with Newsline 9 last week, Woellner said he wants to bring more young people to the area. His age was part of his platform.

"I think having a mayor they think represents them will encourage them to stay around a little bit," he said.

Bill Bialecki was the mayor of Merrill for two terms.
