June 17, 1965 — U.S. Rinaca Jr. told the Shenandoah Town Council Tuesday evening that he would accept the job of mayor with reservations, indicating that he might not serve the entire term of four years.
Shenandoah did not have a candidate for mayor on its ballots in the June 8 town election.
Rinaca defeated R.P. Good by six write-in votes, but did not announce until Tuesday that he would accept the mayor’s post.
“I appreciate the council’s support of me, those who voted for me and those who have urged me to serve since the election,” Rinaca said in announcing he would accept the post.
