ELECTION RESULTS


Tuesday, April 2, voters came out in force in Licking to make their voices heard. This was an important election for Licking, with two bond questions for the City, one bond issue for the School District, and two aldermen and the mayor up for election.

The City of Licking was relieved that both of their bond issues passed, making it possible for the City to pursue the most economical means of repairing the aging water infrastructure.

Both incumbent aldermen were re-elected, Danny Wade for Ward I and Gregory Green for Ward II. Keith Cantrell was unopposed in his race for reappointment as Mayor.

The School District faced a challenge with a bond issue coinciding with the City’s bond issues. The school bond issue failed in a close vote, but the reason for the bond request remains. Few question the need for upgrades to the elementary school buildings, but a majority appeared to question their ability to pay for the upgrades. Anticipate future propositions from the District as they are faced with the dilemma of how to provide the children of the district with the best possible education while keeping them safe and secure.

The Texas County and Edgar Springs election results follow.
