Every candidate wins uncontested town election

By Staff | Jun 1, 2010

Every single candidate in this year’s municipal election have won seats on the Town Council.

This is the result from today’s uncontested, under-participated municipal election, polling for which was conducted earlier today at the historic Entler Hotel at the intersection of German and King Street’s. No one filed to run against incumbent Mayor Jim Auxer nor incumbent Town Recorder Lori Robertson. Furthermore, only four candidates registered to run for the five-seat Town Council, leaving one seat open to be filled by appointment.

Less than 50 people cast ballots in the election, with Robertson snagging the most votes at 49. Mayor Jim Auxer received 45 votes.

Incumbent Town Councilwoman Wanda Grantham Smith again snagged the most votes of any Town Council candidate, with 47 votes. Current Planning Commissioner David Rosen won 44 votes. Bane Schill, another current member of the municipal Planning Commission, recieved 42 votes. Josh Stella, also a member of the Planning Commission, received the least votes with 38 cast in his favor.
