Wise County Election Results
You can check it out here.
With a chance to gain four, Republicans pick up two seats on the Wise County BOS. Yippee! With district three sup John Peace making the unwise decision to abandon his BOS seat to pursue the office of treasurer gave the GOP a good shot and they took it! Not only was Peace defeated in the treasurer race by Republican Delores Smith, his BOS seat was taken by Republican J.H. Rivers. I wrote about this back in June. Dem Leland Branham was defeated by Republican Dana Kilgore to seal a two seat BOS pick up.
Republican Sheriff Ronnie Oakes wins by a landslide-No surprise there.
Democrat Jack Kennedy is re elected-No Surprise. In fact I thought he would win by a larger margin. Something to think about there for the future.
