Moore ousts Amsden; McClain, Arnett win

By Jim Clark
Voters turned out for the primary election on Tuesday, Aug. 14, and in the process sent one county commissioner packing.
They also selected Republican candidates for sheriff and school superintendent.
David Moore was the Republican primary winner for the nomination for County District 1, unseating Mike Amsden. Moore grabbed 51.14 percent to Amsden’s 48.86 percent. Moore must face a write-in candidate in November.
County Commissioner Stan McClain survived a tight battle with Jeff Gold. McClain had 52.26 percent to 47.74 percent for Gold. McClain also faces a write-in hopeful in November.
Write-in candidates are not listed on the ballot.
A more competitive County Commission race will take place in November for District 5. Republican Earl Arnett tallied 36.16 percent, good enough to outpoll three other candidates, including Fran-cine Johannesen at 27.34, Pat Gabriel at 24.68 and Butch Verrando at 11.82 percent. Arnett will go up against a Democratic challenger, Jessica “Cookie” Hadley, in the general election.
“I’m very proud to have been selected,” commented Arnett as the evening drew to a close at the elections office. Final totals were posted at 9:20 p.m.
“We need to focus on reducing costs. Revenue is down 40 percent. We can’t cut essential services, but we have to make cuts.”
Arnett said he ran because “I looked at the candidates who were already running, and they didn’t have the (business) background or experience. I felt the time had come to step up.
“The bottom line is I have 40 years of business experience and knowledge.” He said he was a “businessman, not a politician.”
Two other closely watched races went down to the wire, with late surges gaining victories for the candidates. In the race for Sheriff, Dan Kuhn finished with 52.88 percent, while Chris Blair came in at 47.12 percent. Kuhn faces Constitution Party member Bernie DeCastro in November, as well as a write-in candidate. There are no Democrats in the race.
George Tomyn won the School Superintendent primary, in a tough three-way race dominated by some negative campaigning. Tomyn scored 41.32 percent, current School Board member Jackie Porter registered 33.03 percent and Wally Wagoner finished third at 25.65 percent. Tomyn will go up against Diana Greene, a Democrat, in November. Both are administrators in the school system.
“We’re very excited, very happy that we were able to run a professional, clean campaign and that’s what you’ll see from me and my team in the future,” an excited Tomyn said. “We’ll present everything professionally, and I believe that’s what will lead us to victory in November.”
Mike Graves won the multi-county decision for public defender.
