Lincoln mayoral race was hotly contested, with Republican incumbent
Mayor Beth Davis, Democrat Jan Tabor and independent Tom O'Donohue.
Mayor Davis won with 52 percent -- 1,462 votes.
Logan County officials will have a
bit of help with the next fiscal year's budget. County residents
approved a half-cent sales tax. The revenue will start coming in
late next fall. The dollars generated by it will help prevent
permanent cuts to services from all county departments and will help
the highway and health departments, which are running on reserves,
get back into the budget for the 2005-06 fiscal year.
The most tightly contested race was
for clerk in the village of Elkhart. In that race
Gwen Rosenfeld had 105 votes and
Elizabeth Kay Davis 103 votes.
