Businessman Bob Michael, who has served on the town planning commission as both a member and as chair, won his first four-year term on the Cedaredge Town Board in the April 5 election.
Cedaredge trustee Dayton Myers has won a second four-year term. Myers won 389 votes or 53.51 percent of those cast, and Michael won 338 votes or 46.49 percent, according to unofficial results from the county elections department.
Myers expressed his thanks to the voters for having the confidence to vote for him again and return him to office for a second term.
Michael said, "Thanks for the vote of confidence. As trustee I will strive to keep our town a safe and prosperous place to live."
The two trustees will join continuing members Patti Michael, Al Smith and Larry Smith.
Trustee Nancy Sturgill was term-limited as trustee, as was Hanson. With Myers re-elected to his seat and Bob Michael joining the board, there will still be one vacancy among the trustees.
Initiating a process to select an appointment to that vacancy will be one of the first tasks the new board will take up when members pledge their oaths of office on April 21.
The current town board still has one more work session together, and a special meeting for an executive session on a personnel matter was called for Tuesday, April 12.
