November 6, 2018


Newcomers John Bennett and Jacki Liszak will replace incumbents Theodore Schindler and Carol Morris on the Fire Board, with Robert Raymond retaining his seat.

Bennett took an early lead for Seat 5, ultimately winning with 2,425 votes to Schindler's 1,118.

Schindler, a retired U.S. Air Force lieutenant colonel, has served on the board since 2010, when he was elected with no prior political experience.

Raymond held on to Seat 1 with 1,797 votes, while Forrest Critser received 1,194, and Bill Santomas followed with 537.

Election results are unofficial until certified.
