Change we can believe in came in the form of a Republican sweep Tuesday evening as Adams County voters took to the polls.
In one of two contested countywide races, political newcomer Jeremy Brown, a Republican, toppled Democratic incumbent Christopher Harvey for the job of Adams County Prosecuting Attorney by a wide margin. Brown received 4,865 votes countywide to Harvey’s 2,782 votes.
Brown will take office Jan. 1.
While fellow Republican Jeremy Brown was sailing to a convincing victory in his bid to become Adams County’s next prosecuting attorney, fellow candidate Jim Vogelwede held up his end of the bargain as well, leading the GOP to a sweep of countywide offices leading into the new year.
Adams County Republicans gathered at the Elks Lodge in Decatur to await the results of Tuesday’s General Election. As the final votes were tallied, several members of the GOP gathered as newly-elected Prosecutor Jeremy Brown was officially declared the winner.
Lori McGill was the winner of our Pigskin Picks week nine as the second person this season to nail all 10 games. The tie-breaker score this week was 64 points between the Broncos and Patriots game and Lori's guess was 55. Lynn Ruble nabbed second place also missing zero games but because of her tie-breaker guess of 46 points she was just behind Lori. In third place was Todd McGill who missed just one game and was closest to the tie-breaker score with 63. In the overall standings (winner for the season gets three months free subscription to the DDD),
