Summers Edges Out Bledsoe by Six Votes in the Clendenin Municipal Mayoral Election
The June 11th, 2019 election was held and Kay Summers (85 votes) slides by Bledsoe (79 votes) with a six-vote margin. All knew it would be a close race for Mayor between the two running, but as far as we have checked, this was the closest election in years, maybe ever. The other candidates Susan Jack-46-votes, and Write-in Kenny Payne-28-votes also brought in a few of the resident’s votes. The Recorder, Erica Kearns ran unopposed and had 183-Votes. The Council will consist of; Tim Huffman -165 votes, John B. Shelton-126 votes, B. Mike Stout-124 votes, Ron Deel-120 votes, Dave Knight118 votes. Other candidates who ran but did not receive enough votes to set on the council were; Russell Underwood-101 votes, and Richard Owens-70 votes. The new administration will take over on July 1st and will hold these positions for two years until the next election. Congratulations to all on a great win.
