Gary Watson wins District I

KINGMAN - Voters braved the windy, chilly weather to come out in droves to the polls on Tuesday.

The large number of votes cast slowed things slightly at the Mohave County Elections Department, but preliminary results from around 86 percent of the precincts were out around 8 p.m.

In the local races, unofficial results showed the Supervisor District I seat going to candidate Gary Watson with around 55 percent of the vote. "I'm very pleased with the outcome and eager to get to work," he said. He's already spoken to current District I Supervisor Pete Byers about projects in progress at the county that he will pick up when he takes office in January.

The Mohave County Community College Bond at 8 p.m. failed, with 57 percent voting against it. The Joint Technical District, which would include Kingman Unified School District, seemed to be winning voters' approval with 69 percent of the vote.

The two Kingman Unified School District seats went to Patrick Carlin with 36 percent and Terri McMullen with 42 percent.

The three new board members of the Northern Arizona Consolidated Fire District No. 1 are Jim Bailey with 23 percent of the vote, Michael Collins with around 23 percent, and Erik Berg with 18 percent.

The Division V Superior Court Judge race went to Rick Williams with around 68 percent of the vote.

The U.S. Representative race for District 2 went to Trent Franks with around 63 percent of the vote.

The State Senate race for District 3 went to Ron Gould with around 64 percent of the vote.

The State Representative District 3 vote favored Doris Goodale with 36.86 percent of the vote and Nancy McLain with 37.73. The three slots on the Arizona Corporation Commission went to Sandra Kennedy with 18 percent, Paul Newman with 18 percent and Bob Stump with 16 percent.

As an active campaign volunteer for Gary, I have to say that it's a wonderfully rewarding experience to invest time and effort into a project that has a successful outcome.

My job was to create the positive image of Gary for his campaign.

It is inherently easy to portray a man who has decency and integrity. One doesn't have to dig to find good qualities or struggle to present them in a rosy light. They sort of shine by themselves.

Subsequently I actually had very little to do except arrange words for print, publishing and his website -- Gary had already done the hard part in crafting that image with efforts that spanned decades. My job only required a few weeks.

Oh, and by the way George -- Gary will be doing a great job for all Mohave County -- not just kingman.

I believe your right when it comes to building a university in an area convenient to Kingman, Havasu and BCH. That area would be Golden Valley, AZ. Only if our local government doesn't insist in on it being in Kingman or BHC so that they can benefit from the proceeds; as they insisted on Home Depot being built in Kingman so they could get the profits,leaving Golden valley in the stone age.

It is unfortunate the college bond was defeated. The hundred million might be better spent in developing a 4-yr university with vocational courses in an area convenient to Kingman, Havasu and BHC/Mohave Valley.

Also congratulations to Gary Watson. He'll do a great job for Kingman.
