JONESVILE — Incumbent Ernest Moore defeated two challengers in Tuesday’s municipal election to win a third term as mayor of the Town of Jonesville.
Unofficial results show that Moore received 113 votes to Jonesville Town Councilman Danny Horlacher’s 69 votes and political newcomer Mark Goudelock’s 25 votes.
The results of Tuesday’s election will be certified by the town’s election commission on Thursday.
Moore is in his sixth year as mayor of Jonesville, having previously won a four-year term in 2010 and, in 2008, a two-year term.
Prior to 2010, the mayor and town council members were elected in the same year to two-year terms. Beginning in 2010, however, the terms were increased to four years and mayor and council elected in separate years to staggered terms.
Before being elected mayor in 2008, Moore served one term on Jonesville Town Council.
Also on Tuesday’s ballot were two seats on the Jonesville Water Commission.
Incumbents Julia DeHart and Fred Faucett were both reelected Tuesday even though only DeHart was on the ballot.
Faucett did not file for reelection and so his seat had to be decided by write-in votes and they were with voters choosing to return him to office.
