Politicians Battle for Local County Commission Seats

Nov 7, 2012

The race for three Clark County Commission seats produced two clear winners Tuesday night and one race that looks like it will be heading for a recount.  In Montgomery County, two hotly-contested commission races went to Democrats.  WYSO's Wayne Baker reports.

In Clark County, Republican Ross McGregor defeated Democratic challenger David Herier 55 percent to 44 percent.  

Republican incumbent John Detrick took 56 percent of the vote to turn back his opponent, Democratic Douglas Geyer.

And in a race that appears headed towards a recount, longtime Democratic Commissioner David Hartley trailed GOP challenger Kyle Koehler by only 205 votes.

One seat on the Montgomery County Commission went to Democrat Judy Dodge, who held off GOP challenger Dave Vore with a 49 to 47 percent victory.  The other seat went to fellow Democrat Debbie Lieberman, after she defeated GOP opponent Ashley Webb 54 to 46 percent.
