The Municipal Elections held Saturday, May 12, resulted in some confusion due to the combined polling place for the City of Mason and the Hickory Underground Water District and the heavy turnout for each election.
After very careful reconciliation of the voter signature pages and the voter lists that are kept for each district, on Monday the Presiding Judge of the City election could certify the returns and declare the election results correct. The election results will be canvassed by the sitting City Commission at their regular meeting on Monday, May 21, 2012 and at that time the newly elected officials will be given their certificate of election and oath of office.
The final tally for the City elections are:
Commissioner District One: Sabin Nelson 29
John H. Schafft 12
Tammy Gardner 24
Commissioner District Three: John Gammill 73
Bob Vacek 34
John “JC” Copeland 11
