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.
