Fairfield run-off election Tuesday
Fairfield voters will head to the polls Tuesday to decide a race that could not be decided Nov. 5.
City councilor Connie Boyer is stepping down from her position on the council. Four candidates sought to replace Boyer, but when the dust settled none of them received 50 percent of the vote necessary to win the election.
The two candidates who received the most votes were Patrick Bosold with 535 votes (44 percent) and Douglas Flournoy with 469 votes (39 percent).
Since no candidate received a majority of the votes, the top two candidates must compete in a run-off election.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday.
The five polling places are:
• First Ward: Fairfield High School;
• Second Ward: Lincoln Elementary School;
• Third Ward: Nazarene Family Center;
• Fourth Ward: Jefferson County Courthouse;
• Fifth Ward: Pence Elementary School.
Other candidates for the at-large seat city council, who will not be included in the run-off, were Andrew Perry with 89 votes (7 percent), Richard Walbaum with 49 votes (4 percent), and Will Richards with 44 votes (4 percent). Richards withdrew from the race after his name was printed on the ballot.
Voter turnout in Fairfield was about 18 percent for the Nov. 5 election.
