UNION — One incumbent was unopposed and two were returned to office during Tuesday’s elections for three seats on Union City Council.
Incumbent councilman Keith Henderson was unopposed in his reelection bid and received 418 votes.
The race for the District 4 seat pitted incumbent Ricky Todd Harris against challenger Kevin Montgomery.
Harris, who was seeking his third term on council, won reelection with 315 votes to 266 votes for Montgomery.
“I appreciate everybody and I want to thank everybody for coming out to vote,” Harris said. “I want to thank my family for putting up with me. I want to thank Kevin Montgomery for runing a clean race and I look forward to listening to some of his ideas and anybody else who has ideas.”
The District 6 contest was rematch between incumbent Jim Wilson and challenger Sonja Craig. The two first faced each other in June during a special election fill the seat which had been left vacant due to its previous holder’s resignation. Wilson defeated Craig and is currently serving the unexpired term of his predecessor.
Unofficial results show that Wilson received 259 votes while Craig received 245.
“I just want to thank everybody who came out and voted for me, I really appreciate it,” Craig said. “It was a very clean race as were all the races in Union. I’m very glad to see that in our little community.”
Wilson said he enjoyed running again and thanked his family and friends and the voters for their support.
“It was a great experience running for office again,” Wilson said. “I’d like to thank all the family and friends who campaigned for me. I’d like thank all the people who came out and voted. I want to build on what we’ve accomplished in the five months since I was elected.”
