The results for Pulaski’s general municipal election are in, and Jeff Worrell has been re-elected for another two year term as mayor for the Town of Pulaski.
This will be Worrell’s fourth term as mayor, as he was first elected in 2008 following a 10 year stint on town council. He defeated opponent and Pulaski insurance agent Nick Glenn, who was challenging Worrell for a first term as mayor.
Lane Penn, a former Pulaski town councilman, was elected to council today for a four year term, while the other two incumbents, H.M. Kidd and David Clark, were re-elected to their seats on council for full terms as well. Pulaski town councilman Joseph Goodman was the only incumbent to not be re-elected to council.
Dublin town council incumbents Dallas Cox, Stephen Crigger, and Peggy Hemmings all ran un-opposed for re-election.
Worrell defeated Glenn by 17 votes, garnering 295 votes, while Glenn came in close behind with 278. Penn was elected with 408 votes, while Clark was re-elected with 389 and Kidd garnered 347, narrowly beating out Goodman, who finished with 337 votes.
There are still 12 absentee ballots to be counted as well, which could potentially affect the outcome of the election. The Southwest Times will provide updates on this information as it becomes available.
