JASPER -- A transfer of power.  The City of Jasper has a new man at the helm.  

Dean Vonderheide officially takes over as mayor Monday, replacing resigning mayor Terry Seitz.

Now, the search is on to find a replacement for Vonderheide on the common council and the list of candidates is growing.

Richard Moss and Justin Kluemper announced late Friday they’d run to replace Vonderheide on the council.

Phil Mundy, Patty Brosmer and Levi Hulsman all threw their hats into the ring Friday morning.

The new names are added to the original list of candidates who have declared.  They are... Merrill Osterman, Bernie Fallon, Steve Block, Adrian Engleberth, Chad Lueken, Tim Bell, Steve Messmer and Paul Lorey.
