WILLISTON – Voters here chose City Commissioner and lifelong Williston resident Howard Klug as their next mayor.

In complete but unofficial results, Klug had 76 percent of votes, while entrepreneur Marcus Jundt had 19 percent and Jim Purkey had 5 percent.

The three candidates battled to lead the rapidly growing boomtown and succeed Mayor Ward Koeser, who is retiring after 20 years.
