Incumbent Bill Lusk won in Disctrict 3 with 69.82 percent of the vote. Write-in candidates gained 30.18 percent of the vote.
One write-in candidate was Al Trevillyan.
Lusk said he never took the race for granted, even though he did not think Trevillyan stood a chance of winning,.“That didn’t give me reason not to run hard like I always do,” he said. “I ran it as I would any race.”
Lusk said he is thankful for the residents who came to the polls to support him.
Mayor Joe Lockwood breezed to an unopposed victory.
