Election results


PENDLETON — A challenger and an incumbent won in the two contested races in Pendleton in Tuesday’s election.
Democrat Jerry Burmeister defeated incumbent Republican Shane Davis 395-319 in a race for Pendleton Town Council, at-large.
“I’m disappointed at the low numbers that voted,” Davis said. “All we can do is hope that the town keeps moving forward.”
Davis has been on the five-person council for six years. Burmeister has been a councilman for six months, appointed to complete a District 1 term that expires Dec. 31.
A call to Burmeister was not returned by press time.
In the clerk-treasurer race, incumbent Republican Willie Boles defeated Democratic challenger Joe Noel 449-291.
“I’m really glad the people of Pendleton saw fit to come out and vote for me (again),” Boles said.
Noel said despite the loss, he was happy he ran.
“I think all races should be contested,” Noel said. “It elevates the conversation.”
Republican newcomer Cory Hall and Democratic incumbent Steve Denny ran unopposed for town council districts 1 and 2, respectively.
