Worrell re-elected mayor, Penn elected to town council


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.

      did you run for office?
      did you vote?

      if you answer no to both of those questions, then don’t complain.

        I agree. Its called democracy. If you have a complaint or question it should be – How do we get more voter turnout.

        Darn this thing we call democracy.

    Glad Worrell was re-elected. The last thing we needed was another strident conservative like Glenn. In fact we need to rid ourselves of those types. Defeating Goodman was a good first step.

      So James, we need to “rid ourselves of those types?” Did you consider many of us vote for those types and agree with the conservative agenda? Called checks and balances to have both parties involved. Otherwise many voices are not represented.

    There are probably a few types on both sides that we need to get rid of so why don’t we just stop with the partisan hatred.

    Although I do not live in the Town of Pulaski the elections there effect the county as a whole. I was shocked to see that persons living in the town believe in what the left has done to this town, state, and country. I hope these people will take time to take a long hard look at the issues the left is bearing on all of us. Our governor plans to take 50 billion dollars for free health care aka Medicaid , that sound great till you really think about who is going to pay for it when the money runs out. The taxpayers do. To pay for it state income taxes will almost double.
    And they really approve of this logic, really. O well onward through the fog.
