Sherri Anderson will return to the Luther School board for a second five-year term, while political newcomers Brian Hall and Dr. Jeff Schwarzmeier will join the Luther Town Board of Trustees.
The Luther Register reported the first results at the largest of the precincts for Luther’s voting population at the Luther Community Center. Anderson held a sizable lead although eight more precincts, including some in Logan and Lincoln counties, had not reported. But ultimately, Anderson won every precinct.
Both Hall and Schwarzmeier grabbed the most votes at the polling place where most Town residents cast a ballot. As the evening wore on, more results were reported from the State Election Board that included ballots for early voting, absentee and in person at all of the precincts. Hall and Schwarzmeier earned the most votes, although Andy McDaniels was only six votes behind “Dr. Jeff” Schwarzmeier.
When all of the precincts reported, the results did not change. Anderson was re-elected to a second five-year term, defeating challenger Justin Wood. For the Town, Hall and Schwarzmeier were elected to four-year terms.
Hall, owner of Thermal Kat Heat & Air Conditioning, and Schwarzmeier, a chiropractor, will join Trustees Jenni White (Mayor), Paxton Cavin and Trandy Langston on the five-member panel that governs the town. The newly elected Trustees will succeed Lea Ann Jackson and Jason Roach who chose not to run.
