Already a strong Republican Fayette County Board became even stronger in that direction after Tuesday’s election. In District One, Republican Jacob Harris won his re-election race as he defeated write-in Democrat candidate Al McDowell. In District 3, Republican Chad Austin was re-elected to the board as he ran as a write in and captured the seat. Debra Warner in District 4, Keith Cole in District 5, Glen Gurtner in District 6 and Glenda Bartels in District 7 were all Republicans who ran for re-election unopposed. In District 7, Republican Wade Wilhour did not run for another term, but Republican Joe Wills ran unopposed to fill the seat. In District 2, longtime Democrat board member John Daniels, Junior did not seek another term. So, in District 2, Republican Merrell Collins was elected to the county board seat as a write-in candidate. That leaves longtime board member Glen “Whitey” Daniels as the only Democrat on the Fayette County Board. The new board will be sworn in on December 3rd and would begin their time at the December 11th board meeting.
