A special committee has decided Joe Gatto can run for the Ward Four city council seat in Des Moines.
A Des Moines woman challenged Gatto’s residency because he has two homes. One is in Ward Four and the other is in Ward Three.
A panel made up of the mayor, a council member and the city clerk discussed the matter Tuesday afternoon and decided Gatto is still eligible to run.
The special election will be held on March 4th.
