Lebanon City Council Fills Dan Bost’s Seat After Democrat Amy Keller Resigns
Amy Keller narrowly defeated her opponent last year to become Lebanon City Council’s sole Democratic member, but recently left after moving out of Lebanon. Council members then voted unanimously to fill her position with Republican Daniel Bost, county recorder of deeds who unsuccessfully ran for full council membership himself.
Early Life and Education
Following Amy Keller’s resignation last month, Lebanon City Council unanimously decided to fill her position with Republican Dan Bost, who unsuccessfully ran for Recorder of Deeds office last year. With his win on City Council he becomes Lebanon’s sole partisan representation.
LebTown first reported on this matter after receiving information from an anonymous tipter who claimed Alex Kuhn, son of Lebanon County Commissioner Mike Kuhn, had created and administered the Facebook page supporting Dan Bost for Recorder of Deeds. Unfortunately, this source did not respond to follow-up inquiries from this publication.
Patsy Nell Bost Abell, who had lived for 82 years, passed peacefully away at her Lewisville, North Carolina, home on May 30th at age 82. Her surviving family included Dr. James Curtis Abell; daughters Kelli Fields and Robert Fields as well as Christy Cason and Bryan Coe as well as two granddaughters Rylee Marie Abell and Wesli Ruth Abell.
After graduating from Murphysboro High School in 1979, Bost joined the Marines. He spent 13 years serving his nation before rejoining Bost Trucking Service of Murphysboro first as driver then as manager.
He is now a partner at YHB and serves on its audit team. As an expert in complex accounting matters such as lease and revenue recognition, he has become a valued member of this firm.
Lebanon City Council appointed Republican Daniel Bost as Amy S. Keller resigned last month. This marks the first time Lebanon City Council is entirely comprised of Republicans. On Tuesday night at Hartnell College vs Porterville Bost scored 26 points while making seven three-point shots to set his career high total of 37 for Hartnell College and set an NCAA career best.
Achievement and Honors
Amy Keller announced earlier this month her resignation from Lebanon City Council following her unsuccessful 2019 bid for full term. At a special meeting of council, its remaining members – all Republicans – decided to fill her seat with Daniel Bost who ran unsuccessfully for Recorder of Deeds last year.
LebTown was alerted by a tipster who claimed that Bost’s campaign had a Facebook page managed by Alex Kuhn, son of Lebanon County Commissioner Mike Kuhn. According to this source, this Facebook page had some 800-plus followers and Bost nor Mike Kuhn responded when requested for comment.
Daniel Bost will be remembered by his wife Jean Knott Bost; daughters Dawn Fields, Bryan and Christy Cason and Andrea and Travis McGee of Rural Hall; grandchildren Kelli Fields, Austin Fields, Kobie Cason, Jeremy Pettitt, Randall McGee and Jacob McGee; mother Frances Sherril Bost of Newton; brother Michael Bost (and Diane), sister Brenda Saunders and Bob Saunders both of Lewisville; as well as mother Frances Sherril Bost; memorial Services will be held for Daniel at the end of September for family members to pay their respects to Daniel’s memory.
Bost had been serving as Lebanon County Recorder of Deeds prior to being chosen as Amy S. Keller’s successor due to her move away from Lebanon City. All Republican council members unanimously selected Bost as her replacement.
