Silverton elects 4 to Town Council

Silverton voters elected four Town Council members Tuesday, choosing Larry Gallegos, Malcolm MacDougall, Pete Maisel and Karla Safranski.
Maisel was the top vote-getter with 348, followed by MacDougall with 253, Gallegos with 236 and Safranski with 214. Safranski, as the fourth-place finisher, wins a two-year term on the council and the others win four-year terms.
Other candidates were Barbara Renowden with 192 votes and Kevin Baldwin with 175.
“We have a lot of work to do,” Maisel said. “I look forward to working with the incumbents and the new trustees and market the town. Let’s settle down and get things done.”
Turnout in the April 1 election was 68 percent, with 426 of the town’s 629 voters casting ballots.
“We finished counting at around 11:45 Tuesday night,” Town Administrator and Acting Clerk Brian Carlson said. “The count was very time-consuming, owing primarily to the number of ballot questions involved.”
