Henry County Auditor Shelly Barber says there’s no provision for a run-off in Salem in case of a tie so the Supervisors will have to draw a name when they canvass the vote on Tuesday. Dan Patterson tied Linda Ward thanks to one absentee ballot. In Mt. Pleasant Ward 4 residents had a choice and voted in Alan Huisinga. He received 159 votes. Brant Knudsen received 29.
New London voters also had choices to make. Five candidates ran for three seats. The voters chose Dan Berner, Greg Malott and Frank Staley. In Rome, where many times the council was selected by write-in votes, there was a race for mayor and six residents ran for the five seats on the council. Jeremy Lanferman received 12 votes for mayor and Philip Moore 4. Elected to the council were Lester Garrison, Martha Garrison, Deb Sammons, Dennis Sammons and Maria Whetsler.
