Three new members were elected to the Eau Claire County Board in last week’s spring election. Results were released Monday beginning at 4 p.m.
Out of the 12 contested races, nine incumbents were reelected and three newcomers will join 26 other supervisors on the County Board.
Dane Zook unseated incumbent Bert Moritz in District 6, winning 58.7% of 969 total votes.
“I think it’s a great opportunity,” Zook told the Leader-Telegram.
In District 29, Missy Christopherson defeated incumbent Patrick LaVelle, receiving 525 votes (59.9%). In her first time running for elected office, Christopherson partially attributed her victory to work done before residents began quarantining, meeting potential voters.
“I was looking for something to make a difference,” Christopherson said.
Emily Huerta earned the District 16 seat by receiving 280 votes (61%), defeating Andrew Carrillo.
The closest race occurred in District 27, where incumbent Zoe Roberts edged out Randy DeMars, receiving 384 votes (51.8%) compared to 354 votes for DeMars. Roberts was appointed to the position in October 2019, a seat for which DeMars also applied.
New supervisors are scheduled to be sworn in during the April 21 County Board meeting.
