April 8th Municipal Election Results.

Slightly less than 13 percent of registered voters in Franklin County made it to the polls yesterday. The Franklin County Use Tax did not pass, but you can expect to see it on future ballots, while a 10 cent property tax increase for the Scenic Regional Library passed by less than 100 votes. A one point five eight million dollar bond issue for the Pacific Fire protection district easily passed. The St. Clair Collector will remain an elected position and Sullivan voters approved an 8 cent tax increase for the library.

Incumbent Josh Brinker defeated Carolyn Witt for the Ward 4 Washington city council seat and two new members were elected to the Washington School board, Rebecca Voelkerding and Susan Thatcher while Scott Byrne was reelected. Jeff Palmore defeated incumbent Pacific Mayor Herb Adams. Aaron Bockhorst, Tamara Weinhold and Virgil Weideman were elected to the Union R-11 school board. Bill Hammack will remain the St. Clair chief of police and Matt Mansell was reelected Pacific Marshall.
