Randy Hodson, mayor of
St Anthony Village (MN), has died after the Cessna 172 he was
flying crashed near the town of Webster (WI). There were no
passengers on the aircraft, and the debris field was scattered over
a 200 foot area.
Hodson was a two-term mayor of the city whose second four-year
term was to run until 2007. He was well-liked in the community, and
was described as a cheerleader for the city. Hodson was owner of an
aircraft business as well as a resort.
"He wasn't intimidating, in fact he was actually a big teddy bear,"
said City Manager Mike Mornson said to the Associated Press. "He
was a consensus builder with various groups - brought various
groups together in order to get things accomplished."
