Primary Sees Close Race

May 8, 2013

ST. MARYS — The Republican primary race for St. Marys Council-at-Large proved to be close as five candidates sought three spots in the November General Election.

According to unofficial results, incumbent Bob Fitzgerald led all vote getters with 731 votes, followed by Todd Fleagle with 619 votes,  Dan Uhlenhake with 586 votes, Russ Bailey with 580 votes and Jim Harris with 427 votes. The top three will move on to the November General Election, where they will be unopposed as no Democrats filed to take part in the primary.

Voters Reject Levy

May 8, 2013

ST. MARYS — The much-anticipated and heavily-discussed levy proposed by the St. Marys City School district failed at the polls Tuesday.

According to unofficial results, the operating levy, a 1 percent income tax coupled with a 5-mill property tax, failed by a vote of 2,316 to 1,522. This means that all budget cuts passed by the Board of Education that were contingent upon the levy’s failure will go into effect this fall.

St. Marys Superintendent Shawn Brown did not hide his disappointment as he discussed the future of the district.
