Gerhart wins re-election, one new face for School Board
Tuesday, April 12, 2011
With election results now certified, incumbent California Mayor Gerhart has won re-election and one new face will be on the California School Board.
The turnout of 23.52 percent of the voters in Moniteau County in the municipal election Tuesday, April 5, was higher than seen in many municipal elections, possibly because of the number of candidates in school board races and a three-way race for California Mayor. Out of 9,044 registered voters in the county, 2,127 showed up at the polls to cast votes.
