Board of Elections: one Guernsey County race decided by a single vote

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- The votes have been tallied, and preliminary primary election results released in counties throughout our listening area.

In the primary election for Guernsey County Commissioner, Republican Dave Wilson beat Dan Larrick, 1,597 - 792. On the Democratic ticket, Frank Fleischer won against Norman Wheeler, 1,068 - 632. Wilson, Fleischer, and Libertarian Don Warnock will square off in the General Election in November. In the race for Guernsey County Probate/Juvenile Judge, Andy Warhola defeated fellow Democrat Kent D. Biegler by only one vote, 918 -917. Republican David Bennett ran unopposed in the GOP primary for the judge's seat. And in the Libertarian Primary for State Representative to the 97th District, Nelson Roe beat Al Espenschied, 35 - 7. Roe will take on incumbent Rep. Brian Hill for the seat in the fall.

In Noble County, in the race for County Commissioner, Republicans chose Virgil Thompson over Ty Moore, 624 - 569. Thompson will face Democrat Kevin Walters in November.

Guernsey County voters also approved a county-wide, one mill additional tax levy for the operation of Alcohol and Drug Addiction and Mental Health Programs. Fire levies for both Senecaville and Lore City passed by large margins, as well. And voters in Cambridge's Ward 4 approved a measure that will allow alcohol sales at the Local's North End Market.

Local voters also weighed in on a number of state primaries and issues. Guernsey, Noble and Belmont County voters overwhelmingly voiced their support for Jennifer Garrison over Gregory Howard in the Democratic Primary for U.S. Representative to Congress for the Sixth District. Garrison will take on Republican incumbent Bill Johnson in the fall. And Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ed Fitzgerald defeated Larry Ealy, and will face against incumbent GOP Gov. John Kasich in November.

State Issue 1, a proposed constitutional amendment to fund public infrastructure capital improvements with general obligation bonds, was passed by Guernsey, Noble and Belmont County voters.
