The 2023 Garfield Re-2 School Board election is slated for Tuesday.
Current incumbents include District C’s Christina Maness and District B’s Jason Shoup. Dawn Evridge formally represented District D but resigned in September.
Shoup, Maness and Evridge’s seats are up for re-election to four-year terms, but the current incumbents are not running this year.
District D challengers are New Castle residents Daniel Adams and Chance W. Jenkins, as well as Silt resident Nicholas R. Cocina. District B challengers are Silt resident Kaylin Harju and Rifle resident Cassie Haskell. Rifle resident Fathom Jenson is running unopposed for District C.
Each candidate answered a simple questionnaire sent out by the Post Independent this past week. The questions include:
What made you want to run for the school board?
What’s your background?
What is something that you want the community to know about you?
If elected, what is something that you are most focused on to help Excellerate the district?
The social studies curriculum is a hot course for the Garfield Re-2 School District. What is your stance on the type of social studies standards that should be implemented at Garfield Re-2 schools?
Here are the candidates’ responses (Cocina did not respond):
Not one thing in particular made me want to pursue this position. I generally believe that this world is what we make it and I think engaging in our civil processes is key to this. We have to engage one another with honest conversations to find the point where we can all move forward together.
I was born and raised in Idaho. I graduated high school from North Fremont High School and went on to study at Eastern Idaho Technical College. My mother’s side of the family (Miesner) is native to the Rifle area and I moved here. I worked in architectural iron for two years and then started my own business as a welder in the oil and gas industry. I welded for eight years, became an American Welding Society Certified Welding Inspector (AWS CWI) and moved into operations management with the company I am with. My wife and I operate a cow-calf operation while utilizing forest service grazing permits.
I really enjoy coaching and being involved in youth sports. I have found that through sports it is easier to break down whatever societal barriers may exist and connect with children.
There are a lot of plans and ideas. I want to work to the point where we can increase student achievement and fulfill the strategic plan. I would love to find some money to enhance compensation for teachers currently employed and to attract more good teachers to fill the currently empty slots.
As of Wednesday, Oct. 25 this is an issue that is settled by a vote of 3-1. In my opinion it is time to look forward and allocate these precious resources differently. Resources need to go wherever they can help prepare Re-2 students for their future.
Being a parent of three kids, I want to make sure they receive the best education and I want to be a part of making sure all the children in the Re-2 School District receive a quality education and are ready for college and/or careers.
I have been a part of this community my whole life. I was born and raised here. I went to kindergarten-12th grade here in the Re-2 school district. I own and operate a local business that provides a service to the community.
Like I mentioned before, I’m a mother of three children, I’m happily married and I am a local business owner. I am a strong believer that the public school is a place for a quality education. It is not a place for political agendas or personal agendas to be taught. I want the future generations to excel in all they do and this comes from a solid academic foundation.
If elected, my hope is that we focus on our strategic plan. It’s not something that needs improving but needs to be accomplished. Our strategic plan was put in place this year and I think with us having a plan for academic growth for students, supporting our staff and a growing partnership with the community we will be able to do great things in our district.
Thankfully, this hot course has been resolved on Oct. 25 before the new board is in place. As far as my stance on a “type” of social studies, l am a strong believer that all students need to know the facts about U.S. and world history at an age-appropriate level. Ultimately, it comes down to the teacher teaching the class.
As a mom of soon to be five (children), I’m running for school board to be an active participant in our children’s education, and to represent our community and be a voice to those that don’t feel heard.
I was born and raised in Minnesota, married my husband who grew up in the valley and moved down here. I have a bachelor’s degree from St. Cloud State University. I own/run Mesa Microgreens in Silt since 2019.
I’m passionate about listening to our community, and reflecting that in the school board.
I’m interested in helping the community understand what’s going on in our schools, making sure our school staff is well compensated, and that we have a balanced budget.
Initially, I would have voted for the 2022 Revised State Standards, as It seemed to be the best fit for our community. However, after listening to the last school board meeting I think the school board made the right decision in adopting the 2022 State Standards. A lot of parents’ concerns that were voiced in the community meetings were addressed.
My kids and ensuring that they get the education and experience they deserve. We have an amazing district and our kiddos are a direct representation of that. We need to make sure that our students are ready for what life throws at them after school.
I’ve been a part of the District Accountability Committee (DAC) for the past two years, and I had the privilege of sitting on the Steering Committee for the district’s strategic plan.
I enjoy being a part of this community, I love everything that our community provides. The support our community gives to our youth, our veterans, and our country is amazing. I love the fact that we’re able to raise our kids to be able to hunt, fish, and do activities in the outdoors.
I really want to focus on getting the trust and respect back between the district and community.
To me, social studies is important. Our kids need to learn our history, the good, the bad, and the ugly. They need to understand all sides of current events, and they need to know all of our history; if they don’t, we’ll end up repeating it. I felt the 2022 Revised Standards was the best option for our district and would’ve provided that happy medium for both sides of the spectrum.
Having a good education is something that I’ve valued, and it helped me to be successful in life. This was a result of lots of teachers that put in tons of extra effort. Through the Masonic Lodge I have been supporting local scholarships for students looking for community college education. Now that I’ll have a daughter in the school system next year it’s important that I get more directly involved. We are in an environment where we need strong leadership to help place and keep our schools on a positive trajectory.
I’m a fifth generation in the valley and a proud graduate of Rifle High School. After graduation from Colorado School of Mines I was able to travel the world and meet my amazing wife. Ten years ago, we started the process of taking over the family farm. Today I am the co-owner of a technology company and a part-time farmer. Our daughter will be attending Re-2 next year. Professionally, I’ve been a change leader for over 20 years, working with people of diverse backgrounds and initiating positive changes to the workplaces. These skills combined with my experience as a church leader and part of multiple Garfield County boards make me a well-qualified candidate.
My action-oriented leadership style, politically moderate position, and Garfield County Board involvement is something that I will bring to the School Board, which will aid in making good compromises that fit the Re-2 community at large. I will constantly strive to involve the entire Re-2 community in the board decisions. I have enjoyed talking to many of you and hearing your concerns and ideas about the school board and our path forward.
The imbalance of Latino students to Latino representation in staff, leadership positions and community discussions is a big issue and I plan to get processes in place to bridge the language barrier. I’m a strong believer that improving this will have significant gains across the board in our schools. A accurate Re-2-hosted workshop highlighted lots of things we can do quickly that will help bridge this gap. Simple things like making sure translation support for non-English speakers is always available is critical.
My hat goes off to all the people that participated in the committee and various aspects of this process — thank you. I am in support of the state standard curriculum as it’s the best fit for Re-2. I think the board can help by providing teachers with tools and guidance on how to act when gender questions come up. Establishing when and how we will lead these conversations is something we need to decide when it is age appropriate. I defer back to the playground test on this so we make sure our kids are having good, informed conversations. I also think including more financial education to our students in the social studies curriculum is a skill that will serve our students throughout their lives — something the committee identified as lacking in the state standard.
Thu, 02 Nov 2023 06:52:00 -0500en-UStext/htmlhttps://www.postindependent.com/news/qa-with-garfield-re-2-candidates/Ward 2 candidates make their cases
NEWBURYPORT — The two candidates running for Ward 2 City Council are offering a stark contrast to voters, with one promising to continue giving Ward 2 residents a loud voice on the 11-member group, with the other choosing to focus quietly on policy.
Ward 2 City Councilor Jennie Donahue of Cherry Street is currently running for her second, two-year term on the board but has competition in High Street resident Stephanie Niketic.
The municipal election will be held Tuesday, Nov. 7 and both candidates were asked by The Daily News why voters should pick them to represent their ward for the next two years.
Donahue said she is committed to making the city more livable for everyone, and her priorities include; parking; safe and accessible streets and sidewalks; as well as resolving the downtown culvert issue.
“On all of these issues, I have been loud, some might say too loud or too unpolished,” she said. “My goal has never been to be a professional politician. It has simply been to serve the public.”
Donahue went on to say she uses her big voice to represent those with the greatest needs, who often go unheard.
“I am loud on their behalf and voters should know that I will continue to bring that voice to the council for the people of Ward 2,” she said. “I will keep my sleeves rolled up and do my best to solve every problem residents bring my way. Together, we can make great things happen.”
Niketic said she is dedicated to providing excellent constituent services if elected.
“This is especially important for ward councilors. To listen, communicate, inform and then act on resident concerns,” she said. “Ward councilors are special as the first and last line of defense for specific neighborhoods. That’s a tremendous responsibility and one I take very seriously.”
Donahue said her status as a firm supporter of moving Newburyport Youth Services to 59 Low St. is another reason why she has earned a vote for re-election.
“We own the land and it’s time to get the job done now, not someday when it will only cost more,” she said. “I grew up in this city. We owe it to our youth and their families to finish this important project.”
Donahue also pointed to her support for more affordable housing to make sure the city remains a thriving community for everyone and, “not just the fortunate few.”
“I am committed to taking a balanced approach to the adaptive reuse of (the former) Brown School and short-term rental units, (as well as) listening to my constituents and working with my fellow city councilors to reach consensus,” she said. “We need creative new ideas to solve our housing crisis.”
Niketic said she is particularly concerned about local zoning law, which is one of the most frequent, difficult and complex issues to come before the City Council.
“Zoning has a major impact on things residents care about tremendously, housing, quality of life, parking and more,” she said. “As a citizen advocate, I have followed local zoning legislation and enforcement for decades.”
Being a good fiscal representative is also important to Niketic.
“To approve annual spending, prioritize and approve capital spending and, each year, to set the tax rate,” she said. “Residents are being taxed out of their homes, out of the city and this is one key reason I am running.”
Niketic added she would bring a wealth of community experience and an untiring desire to pour herself into the work to the City Council.
“If elected, I will deliver on consistency, communication, action and advocacy,” she said. “I humbly ask for Ward 2 residents’ votes to work with them and represent them.”

Ongoing discord among Maui County Council members has inspired the launching of campaigns for two candidates: former mayoral candidate and Council Member Alice Lee and Claire Kamalu Carroll, the 48-year-old daughter of Council Member Bob Carroll, who’ll retire this year.
Carroll, one of two adult children of the longtime council member holding the East Maui residency seat, said conflicts among council members have interfered with the legislative body’s business.
“I was really hoping that everyone could work together, but it seems like sometimes personal issues get in the way of what’s supposed to get done for our people,” she said. “I just feel I can do the job.”
Lee, a 1966 graduate of St. Anthony High School, said she’s seeking the Wailuku-Waihee-Waikapu council residency seat held by freshman Council Member Alika Atay, who won the seat two years ago as part of the Ohana Coalition.
Lee and Carroll both pulled nomination papers on Feb. 1, the first day candidates were able to do so. Carroll filed the next day, and Lee said she’ll make her candidacy official soon.
In an announcement, Lee echoed Carroll’s comments about disharmony within the council.
“It is quite obvious that the ongoing discord on the council caused by some members is counter-productive and detracts from the work of the people,” she said. “I had hoped this lack of cohesion would eventually subside and all of the members would find a way to work together. That hasn’t happened, nor does it seem likely to occur.
“I strongly believe that I can bring a sense of unity, order and collaboration back to the council,” she said. “I’ve done it before, and I can do it again.”
When asked if Atay was part of the council’s “ongoing discord,” Lee said he was, but added that she was not “trying to pick on anyone in particular.”
“I’m looking at the big picture,” she said.

An after-working-hours call to Atay’s cellphone went unanswered Wednesday.
On Dec. 1, council members dismissed a bill that would have allowed members to remove individual staff members. The measure reportedly stemmed from the behavior of Atay’s executive assistant, Brian Bardellini, with allegations including “loud, aggressive, intimidating, confrontational and unprofessional” conduct toward a council member and others, according to an Oct. 16 letter from council Chairman Mike White to Atay.
At the time, Atay said there had been no evidence to support White’s allegations.
Without identifying a person, Lee said one of Atay’s aides had been banned from the seventh floor where Council Services and County Clerk offices are located.
Claire Carroll said this last council term was “clearly disappointing that some council members chose to be more focused on seeing how to focus on personal agendas rather than focus on what was to make good government by working together.”
“Agree to disagree and come to a conclusion and move forward,” she said.
Carroll said her father has been “a public servant to the County of Maui and used the term in his campaign ‘Get hooked on good government.’ ”
“I myself will be focusing on bringing balance to the County of Maui,” she said. “I look forward to working as a council member with honesty and integrity and continue to serve as a community member.”
Lee served for 10 full years on the council from 1989 to 1998. She was a Democrat when council seats were partisan offices. In 1998, she made an unsuccessful bid for mayor, barely losing the Democratic primary by 90 votes to James “Kimo” Apana — 7,882 to 7,792. (Apana went on to beat Republican Alan Arakawa, 22,350 to 20,101.)
Lee became director of the county Department of Human Concerns and Housing for eight years, four under Apana and four under Arakawa, who unseated Apana in 2002.
After leaving government, Lee established Alice Lee LLC, a consulting and project management firm, although she said she’s been phasing out of the business for about four years.
She served as a board member of Hale Makua from 2008 to 2016, and she’s vice chairwoman of the Maui County Civil Service Commission, a panel she’s been on since 2012. From 2014 to the present, she’s been president of GO Maui Inc., a housing advocacy, nonprofit organization. From 2015 to the present, she’s headed New Leaf Ranch Inc., as its president. The residential work program helps people recovering from alcohol abuse, drug addiction and other problems. And, she’s chairwoman of A Hui Hou Emergency Relief Program, which helped displaced Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. workers and their families.
She has a bachelor’s degree in political science from Chaminade University.
In her time on the County Council, Lee was the Upcountry member. She lived in Makawao, but she said she moved to Wailuku in 1999 when she became a county department head.
Lee said she’s “fiercely independent” and ready to “get the people’s work done.” She said she wants to tackle the issues of affordable housing, homelessness and infrastructure.
When asked why she’s running, Carrol said she had taken an interest in the East Maui council residency seat since the beginning of last year after a Kipahulu resident suggested she’d make a good replacement for her father.
“I just felt I needed to get more involved with my community and the County of Maui,” she said.
Born and raised in Hana, Carroll said she’s one of two children. She’s a single mother with three adult children and four grandchildren.
For the past two years, she’s been a supervisor at the Hana Ranch Restaurant, and before that she worked for Gammie Homecare for 11 to 12 years, she said.
Former mayoral candidate and Maui County lifeguard Tamara Paltin checked out papers Feb. 1 for the West Maui council residency seat to be vacated by incumbent Elle Cochran, who has mayoral candidacy signs up already.
Three candidates pulled papers for Maui County mayor: former Council Members Mike Victorino and Rick Medina and current Council Member Don Guzman. Victorino filed officially as a candidate Wednesday.
Current Mayor Alan Arakawa has served two consecutive terms and is ineligible to seek re-election because of term limits. He has expressed interest publicly in running for the Kahului council residency seat being vacated by Guzman or for the lieutenant governor’s office.
In state House races, Wailuku resident Justin Hughey pulled papers for the 8th District seat held by longtime Central Maui Rep. Joe Souki, the two-time speaker of the House; and Kihei resident Christine Wildberger checked out nomination papers for the South Maui 11th House seat held by Democratic Rep. Kaniela Ing.
Hughey and Wildberger are running as Democrats.
In November, Ing announced that he intends to seek the U.S. House seat being vacated by Colleen Hanabusa. The 1st Congressional seat serves urban Oahu. Hanabusa is running to unseat Gov. David Ige.
Also, Kihei resident Brian Evans pulled nomination papers to run for the 2nd Congressional seat held by U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. That seat serves residents of rural Oahu and the Neighbor Islands.

Thu, 08 Feb 2018 02:40:00 -0600en-UStext/htmlhttps://www.mauinews.com/news/local-news/2018/02/discord-on-council-spurs-2-candidates/Ramaswamy's dilemma: Why support the America First 2.0 candidate when Trump's in the 2024 race?
CONCORD, N.H. – Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy returns to New Hampshire on Wednesday to formally place his name on the ballot in the state that holds the first primary and second overall contest in the GOP nominating calendar.
In a Republican Party dominated by the former President Donald Trump, Ramaswamy is Trump’s most loyal defender in the large field of GOP presidential contenders.
Ramaswamy, who campaigns on an "America First 2.0" agenda, reiterated to reporters last weekend that "I think there are two America First candidates in this race. That’s Donald Trump and myself. Everybody else comes from an old-school vision of neo-conservatism that is long outdated, and that is not where our party or our base is."

But unfortunately for the candidate aiming to be Trump's heir apparent, the former president isn’t going anywhere. In fact, Trump remains commanding front-runner in the GOP nomination race as he makes his third straight White House run.
"[Ramaswamy] is the biggest surprise," longtime New Hampshire-based Republican consultant Mike Dennehy told Fox News. "He's charismatic, and he's putting in the time in New Hampshire. I think that’s benefited him."
But Dennehy added that "there’s no doubt in my mind that he has a very limited ceiling because of his consistent support of Donald Trump."
"Why would someone want the Trump supporter when they can have Trump himself?" Dennehy said.

While lots of voters who have attended Ramaswamy events in accurate months in Iowa and New Hampshire have said they are likely to back the candidate, plenty of others have told Fox News they remain committed to Trump.
Ramaswamy has repeatedly called Trump the "most successful president in our century."
When the FBI raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, last year in search of classified federal documents, Ramaswamy had Trump’s back.
This year, Trump has been indicted four times — including in federal court in Washington, D.C., and in Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia on charges he tried to overturn his 2020 presidential election loss — making him the first former or current president in American history to be indicted for a crime. Throughout Trump's legal challenges, Ramaswamy has been one of his biggest defenders, taking aim at what he argued was a weaponized Department of Justice.
At the first GOP presidential nomination debate in August — which Trump skipped — Ramaswamy pledged to pardon the former president if elected to the White House.
Ramaswamy last month headed to the Trump-aligned America First Policy Institute in the nation's capital to deliver a major policy address. And on the 2024 trail, two of his top advisers in New Hampshire are veterans of Trump's first two presidential campaigns.

It's not a total love fest. Ramaswamy has taken some swipes at Trump this year.
"I think I can go further than Trump," he highlighted in a Fox News Digital interview in Iowa in April.
"I deliver Trump credit for going as far as he did. I think he went about as far as he was going to go. I’m taking this to the next level," Ramaswamy argued.
Referring to Trump, Ramaswamy offered that "maybe eight years from now I’ll be jaded, cynical, tired and defeated, too. But today I’m ready to actually carry that torch forward and to me, it’s about taking that America First agenda to the next level."
Last month, he criticized Trump for failing to follow through on his pledge to repeal and replace sweeping health care law implemented by his predecessor, former President Barack Obama.
"I am never somebody who will make a false promise," Ramaswamy emphasized.
Ramaswamy saw his poll numbers edge up during the winter and spring, but his standing in the national polls and crucial early state surveys appears to have flatlined recently.
Asked by Fox News this past weekend if he peaked too early, Ramaswamy shot back, "Far from it."
"I’m confident we’re going to be successful, and frankly I think it’s going to take somebody coming from the outside and from a different generation to graduate from the politics of yesterday," he added.

Dennehy sees Ramaswamy's age as a key differentiator from Trump, calling it his "main distinguishing factor."
"I have something unique in my case. I’m young. I have fresh legs… I think fresh legs matter... I think being a leader from the next generation is a special advantage I have to reach the next generation of Americans," Ramaswamy said Saturday.
And he argued that the polls aren't capturing his support.
"We’re building connections with the people who show up at events," Ramaswamy said.
He reiterated that "the people who are coming to our events both in Iowa and New Hampshire are disproportionately people who have never participated in a caucus or a primary. So I think the polls miss that fact. If we’re able to bring those people and people like them out, I feel like we have a very clear path to victory that’s not at all being captured in the polls, precisely because we’re picking up people who have not all viewed themselves as traditional Republicans."
Pointing to the Jan. 15 Iowa caucuses, Ramaswamy said, "I do think we’re setting up for a big surprise that’s going to be delivered in mid-January."

SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) — Host: Heidi Hatch Guest: Congressional District 2 Democratic Candidate Kathleen Riebe
Heidi Hatch sat down with Democratic candidate Kathleen Riebe to discuss why she decided to run for Congress, her experience as a school teacher, State Legislator and mom of 2.
Hear where she stands on the economy, funding Ukraine, Israel, how to fix Social Security, energy and who she supports for President.
Riebe on X formerly Twitter said “Celeste Maloy would cut Social Security and Medicare - and just reminded Utah voters. I will defend the public, earned benefits that Utahns and Americans have spent their lives working for.”
We asked her about the issue of social security, which according to the Congressional Budget Office will be insolvent in the next decade. If nothing is done, Social Security checks will be cut by 25% in a decade.
On the podcast, Riebe said “I haven’t said that I wouldn’t touch it. I said that I wouldn’t get rid of it.”
So what will she do if elected?
“We have a cap of how high your salary has to be and then you stop contributing at the same amount. I would raise that amount of money.”
“There’s also a bunch of solutions that they have on the federal website they talk about if you were at a higher percentage of earners, you start to receive less money.”
“We need to start making a situation for the most vulnerable to have that safety net work when you think about the death benefit that’s been a survivor benefit for families are really struggling that’s a huge amount of money for someone who doesn’t have a caretaker in their lives or to caretakers in your life.
I think there’s room for those algorithms and equations to be tweaked so that the people that need it can get more in the people that don’t need it still can get out what they put into it.”

The Daily Inter Lake reached out to Kalispell City Council candidates running in the Nov. 7 municipal election. The information below was provided by the candidates and edited for spelling, punctuation and space.
Name: Gabe Dillon
Family: Wife, Lynette; kids Isaac (9), Alina (7) and parti poodle Jed.
Community involvement: Flathead Trails Association
Why are you the right candidate for the position?
I will make decisions in the best interest of Kalispell citizens. My perspective comes from 11 years serving at-risk youth in Colorado, five years of public land stewardship in Montana and a variety of work in the private sector in accurate years. I understand the importance of partnerships and am excited about the possibility to connect with my community through public service.
How can Kalispell manage infrastructure needs amid rapid growth?
Kalispell has set forth a good plan with respect to city boundaries and the infrastructure needed to sustain more housing and businesses. The balancing act is promoting growth while also maintaining and improving public services like roads, first responders and health care. We need to make sure our public services are prepared to match the growth.
Audits of the police and fire departments point out the need for additional staff and equipment. How should Kalispell address public safety?
Kalispell should find ways to hire additional staff and equipment for the police and fire departments. The issue is complex because there are vacant positions in both departments while at the same time there is a need to increase services. Mortgage and rent costs are often a barrier to wages offered for these and other jobs, so more affordable housing is one factor. Another is the ability to reach folks that would align well with these careers. An incentive program to draw in good talent is one possibility.
What is the role of the city in addressing homelessness and housing issues?
There is no easy solution to the homeless and housing situation. The costs associated with homelessness are generally divided between the need for public services like police and hospitals and the programs put forth to house people and offer job placement and preventative care. The role of the city is to foster partnerships and create common sense solutions to these issues. Kalispell has seen a rise in homeless people congregating in public spaces in the eight years I have lived here. There has always been a homeless population but it is much more visible now.
What other issues should the city be addressing?
Kalispell is very close to having a robust infrastructure for walkability and access for people with disabilities. Prioritizing this bike and pedestrian plan amid development will always be challenging but is important to maintaining safe routes for our citizens to work and live. I know there are costs associated with this type of improved infrastructure and I believe one of the solutions lies within the costs of development itself.

Sarika Bansal edged out Rachel Jordan for a second time in the race for a Cary Town Council seat, but neither candidate called the race Tuesday night.
Sixty-seven votes separated the two candidates in the District D council runoff, according to unofficial results Tuesday night.
In a phone call, Bansal told The News & Observer she was “pretty confident” but “we’re going to wait for a couple of days for all the ballots to be counted.”
Jordan, in a text message, said she’s “grateful” for the experience, adding “I’m quite willing to wait for everything to be figured out.”
She did not say whether she would ask for a recount.
Here are the unofficial results with all six precincts reporting:
▪Sarika Bansal: 2,746 votes, 50%
▪Rachel Jordan: 2,679 votes, 49%
The Wake County Board of Elections will count any additional absentee ballots at a pre-canvass meeting Nov. 16 at 10 a.m. The results of the election won’t become official until after a meeting to review the early votes and absentee ballots Nov. 17 at 11 a.m.
On Oct. 10, Bansal and Jordan finished ahead of District D incumbent Council member Ryan Eades. Bansal finished first but did not secure the necessary 50% of the vote to win the election. Jordan, placing second, called for runoff.
By state law, there would not be a second runoff election. The candidate with the most votes in a runoff election is the winner. However if there is a tie between two candidates, the state Board of Elections determines who wins.
District D includes west Cary and part of Chatham County and is a growing area with several future development projects and a diverse community. The district has about 25,000 voters in Wake County and 4,000 in Chatham County.
The winner will be one of the two newcomers to the Cary Town Council.
Michelle Craig defeated four-term councilman Don Frantz in the election. Mayor Harold Weinbrecht ran unopposed this year, and Lori Bush was able to hold onto her at-large seat on the town council.
