Trent, Guet, Hazelwood, & Sills prevail in Ronceverte election

By RealWV Staff,

After being selected in February to serve out the balance of the retiring Kathy King’s term on the Ronceverte City Council, Mark Trent received more votes than any other candidate in the city council race and will serve a four-year term.

Trent received 51 votes. Also elected to four-year terms were Ashley Guet with 31 votes and Tanya Hazelwood with 28 votes. With 50 votes, Leah Sills was elected as city recorder.

Other candidates in the city council race included Scott Vogelsong receiving 25 votes, T. Gail White receiving 24 votes, and Eric Mercer received 17 votes.

There are two city council positions for two-year terms which are now vacant. Council will appoint two candidates to fill those seats in the very near future.

The Cemetery Levy was adopted by a vote of 40 to 24, and the Street Levy was adopted by a vote of 47 to 17.

RealWV will provide updates regarding the official results of Ronceverte’s municipal elections as additional details are made available.
