Mayor James G. McCleaf II won a third term in office during the town’s municipal election Monday, according to complete but unofficial returns.
McCleaf picked up 194 votes compared to the 86 votes for Esther R. Robinson, said Town/Clerk Donnie Stotelmyer.
Scott L. Bragunier won one of two open seats on Williamsport Town Council with 180 votes, Stotelmyer said.
Jeffrey Alan Redding has captured a second seat on Williamsport Town Council, Stotelmyer said Tuesday afternoon.
Stotelmyer said Monday night that the race between Redding and Todd R. Kirby was too close to call following the town’s municipal election Monday and at that the town’s election board would have to recount ballots Tuesday.
The election board recounted the ballots Tuesday and determined that Redding received 126 votes compared to the 118 going to Kirby, Stotelmyer said.
Council member Joan Knode, who was unopposed for assistant mayor, received 229 votes.
The current assistant mayor, Anthony “Tony” Drury, was not seeking re-election.
Council member Timothy W. Fraker was also not seeking re-election.
Terms for the offices are four years. McCleaf has been mayor since 2005 and was re-elected in 2009.
