Election brings changes to Williston Town Council
Two new faces will soon join the Williston Town Council.
Eric Moody (244 votes) was the only incumbent to win re-election during the Nov. 7 Williston Town Council election. Dwayne Cagle did not receive enough votes while Kevin Wall did not file for re-election. Taking their places will be newcomers Annie Smalls Tyler (371 votes) and Kurt J. Odermatt (174).
Results for the other three candidates are: Dwayne Cagle (149 votes), Nigel E. Abner (139) and Tim Scott (114).
“It means a lot to me knowing you trust me in this position,” said Moody, who thanked everyone who voted for him.
“I will work hard and try to continue to advance Williston into the future. I am looking forward to seeing some of these projects get started and completed in the next four years,” said Moody of new water lines and upgrades to town parks.
Tyler said she thanks each person who voted for her and is “honored” by their trust.
“I will listen to your questions, concerns and ideas. I pledge to be guided by your input. Together with your help and God’s grace we will remind the surrounding communities how great it is to be a part of the great Town of Williston,” said Tyler.
Odermatt also appreciates the voters for coming out, the other five candidates for putting themselves into the public to serve, and his wife Lora and son Kurt Jr.
“I’m really looking forward to working with the current council and listening and learning from not just the council, but also the citizens of Williston,” he said. “I want to give a 100 percent commitment to help continue to make Williston a great town and community.”
The three council members will be sworn in on Monday, Jan. 8, 2018.
