Glasgow write-in race results are in

By Elizabeth Bell

The results for Glasgow Mayor and Town Council are finally in. Shane Watts was elected mayor, but his name was also on the ballot for town council.


He ran for mayor as a write-in candidate, after realizing there was no one running.


Three of the six seats on the town council were also up for election, and Watts also received the most votes in that race.


Barrett McFaddin and Andrea Bradley were re-elected to town council with 20% and 19% of the vote, respectively.


Someone will be appointed to fill the third seat, which remains open, the county registrar said.


Another local race was decided by write-in, as well.  Kathy Burant was elected to represent the Natural Bridge district on the Rockbridge County School Board after no other candidates registered to run.
