Nolan retains mayor seat in Dewey-Humboldt
Dewey-Humboldt voters re-elected incumbent Mayor Terry Nolan with 60 percent of votes cast Tuesday evening.
The Yavapai County Elections website reports preliminary results with Nolan receiving 60 percent (485 votes), and challengers David Nystrom with 30 percent (241) and Chris Berry with 9 percent (73).
Nystrom sent out an email at 7:30 p.m. thanking his supporters, congratulating Nolan, and wishing Berry the best as Berry continues with the town's Planning and Zoning Commission.
"Terry is a popular, outgoing guy, and his personality works very well for him," Nystrom said.
Four candidates ran for the four seats up for grabs in the council election. Arlene Alen, Dennis Repan and Nancy Wright won the three 4-year term seats; Jack Hamilton won the 2-year term.
Nearly 34 percent of voters cast ballots in this election.
Nolan and Berry were unavailable for comment.
