Kudos to the MT Secretary of State’s office for their pretty awesome election night web interface…of course, the numbers weren’t updated as quickly as I would have liked – I want results NOW! – but it’s amazingly comprehensive and exportable.
Here’s the KRTV summary of local/regional election results.
Congrats to candidate Bob Edwards for his win – he’ll face off against Glen Stinar in November to become the new sheriff. Edwards sure seemed to have the support of the Facebook crowd – whenever I posted an election update mentioning Edwards, there were many comments praising him.
And congrats to Travis Kavulla, who – barring some wild reversal in the results – is going to be on the November ballot as the Republican PSC candidate.
The results are in: Mike Winters is Mayor-elect, and will be joined by Fred Burow and Bob Jones on the City Commission. Wasn’t even close – 58% to 40%. And remember Travis’ post about an anti-incumbent sentiment? Yep – incumbent commissioner Rosenbaum came in dead-last.
Here’s the unofficial results, as reported at KRTV:
- Bill Bronson: 5,759 (40%)
- Mike Winters: 8,430 (58%)
- Fred Burow: 7,629 (26%)
- Bob Jones: 7,256 (25%)
- John Rosenbaum: 5,442 (19%)
- Donna Zook: 6,805 (24%)
Election Day for Great Falls is almost here! We’re going to have a new Mayor – either Bill Bronson or Mike Winters. And we’ll get two new members of City Commission, from a field of four candidates: Fred Burow, Bob Jones, John Rosenbaum, and Donna Zook. Check out some videos of the candidates over at KRTV.
I’m partial to non-incumbents – and that extends not just to municipal elections, but ALL elections. See related post by Travis over at ECW. I don’t think ANY incumbent should feel safe in 2010, in fact.
And speaking of our election, Sandra notes some interesting disconnects in today’s Tribune – including a trip in the Wayback Machine to 2007!
