Voters in the Washington County cities Weiser, Cambridge and Midvale voted in seven collective contests on Nov. 5. A total of two mayors, seven city council members and a pair of school board trustees were up for grabs. Following are the unofficial results as of Tuesday night, according to the Washington County Elections Department.
Polls showed that Weiser residents will have a new mayor, as Randy Hibberd secured the seat with 446 votes. Hibberd’s closest opponent was Dan Randleman who only has 328 votes.
Weiser also has three city council seats available, with early counts showing they will be taken by Larry Hogg at 721 votes, followed by Cliff Barbers at 656 and Layna Hafer with 563. But as Chris Hagans is only ten votes behind Hafer, that could change.
The Weiser School District has two trustee seats up for grabs, with Justin Ericsson ahead of Cary Gibbs for Zone 1, 176-136, and Kerry Nyce taking zone 5 with 167 votes, holding a 93 vote lead over nearest competitor Russell Haggerty.
In the city of Cambridge, two city council seats were at stake. Polls indicated those would go to Levi Harrison and Delray Platt, with 74 and 66 votes, respectively.
Brian Graham ran unopposed for re-election in Midvale, with 26 voters supporting him for another term.
Midvale City Council member Phyllis Widner received 22 votes in her bid for re-election. She is joined by Katie L. Bane, who got 20 votes.
Updates will be made as official results become available.
