Few residents exercised their civic right to cast a ballot during Tuesday’s election for a series of offices in the City of Perry.
Mayor Jay Pattee, running unopposed, was re-elected with 181 votes (93.3 percent), with the write-in slot receiving 13 votes.
Running unopposed for a spot on the Perry City Council was Third Ward incumbent Barb Wolling, who garnered 37 of 40 votes cast for her seat to earn another term.
At-Large councilman Chuck Schott received 185 of the 193 votes cast for his position and will return for another term as well.
First Ward incumbent Phil Stone stepped down from his seat, leaving no candidate officially on the ballot. A total of 42 write-in votes were cast for the position, with Dean Berkland — who announced his write-in candidacy — presumably receiving the majority.
Dallas County Election Commissioner Gene Krumm will canvas the results of Tuesday’s 32 municipal elections across the county in a special meeting of the Dallas County Board of Supervisors Thursday at 4 p.m. in the board’s chambers at 902 Court St. in Adel.
