Republicans chose Warren Township’s Yolan Dennis over
Pomeroy’s Daniel Lantz by a 78-22 percent margin within the county, and Dennis
won the district by about a thousand votes. Lantz won Meigs and Vinton counties;
Dennis won Athens County by nine votes. So her margin of victory came from
Washington County. She now faces Democratic incumbent Debbie Phillips.
Republicans chose from between two Coal Run residents to run for the
Commissioners' seat being vacated by Tim Irvine.
Rick Walters defeated Jeremy Barton by a lopsided 65-35 percent margin. Walters
thus becomes the definite front-runner, since no Democrat has filed for
Commissioner. He could still be challenged by an Independent or write-in
State Issue 1, to reauthorize a ten-year bond issue for
infrastructure projects, passed in Washington County 60-40 percent. It passed statewide, as well.
The Warren Local School District 5.54 mill levy was
renewed by a 64-36 percent margin.
The Belpre City School District 3.65 mill levy was also
renewed by a 71-29 percent margin.
Both renewals are for ten years.
Two liquor options allowing for liquor sales, including on Sundays, at Mama Napoli's Restaurant in Belpre both passed.
