With a win in Tuesday's general election, Port of Quincy Commissioner Brian Kuest was elected to his fourth term on the three-member commission.

Preliminary results from Tuesday evening show Kuest as the winner; he is defeating challenger Jeremy McCreary 660 to 497 votes, or 57.04 percent to 42.96 percent. The Grant County Elections Department has reported there are still some county-wide votes left to count.

Kuest has been a port commissioner for 16 years. He was elected to another six-year term.

A financial consultant in charge of special projects at CliftonLarsonAllen, Kuest is president-elect of the Quincy Valley Chamber of Commerce and past president of the Grant County Economic Development Council.

Kuest is excited to see what the next six years bring to the port district.

"I'm anxious to fill out the next six years," he said. "We have opportunities out there we are going to pursue and we are going to do it in the best interest of the community."
