Cen­tre­ville’s va­cant town coun­cil seat will be filled by Daniel M. Tabler.

Fri­day’s elec­tion brought out 327 of the 1,000 reg­is­tered vot­ers of Cen­tre­ville to choose from five can­di­dates vy­ing for the po­si­tion. The turnout was a marked in­crease from the last elec­tion in which only one per­son ran and 25 res­i­dents voted.

Just af­ter the re­sults were an­nounced, Tabler said, “I ap­pre­ci­ate the turnout. I think we had a mar­velous turnout for a spe­cial elec­tion, to have 327 peo­ple on a day that’s ob­vi­ously busy for peo­ple dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son. And I am cer­tainly pleased with the re­sult.”

The votes were cast as fol­lows: Daniel M. Tabler, 244; G. Ken­neth Lyons, 58; Ann D. Tam­lyn, 16; Ab­bie P. Hardy, 5; and Wil­liam C. Jones, 4.
