BOONVILLE — The town of Boonville will see familiar faces on its board of commissioners after Tuesday’s elections.

In the race for two seats on the board, with four candidates running for those, incumbent Gerald Brown won the most votes with 122 and a former commissioner, Bonnie Bovender Lasky, returning with 119 votes.

Also running were Luke Storie, who received 107 votes, and David Anderson with 27 votes. There were three write-in votes.

Brown was unavailable to comment after the results came in late in the evening Tuesday.

“I’m so excited,” said Lasky of her victory. “This is my second time running. I was in for four years and then out for a couple of years and now I’m back in.

“There are a lot of projects that we began when we were selected for the Small Town Economic Prosperity program, and we completed that program. I hope to continue with the progress that we’ve already begun because Boonville is on a really, really, really good track forward,” she said.

“We have a good town board that’s going to work well together,” said Lasky. “I just look forward to working for the citizens of Boonville and continuing to make Boonville a better place to live, work and play.”

Rusty Hunter, who was running unopposed, was re-elected as Boonville’s mayor with 183 votes. There were 12 write-in votes.

And winning an unopposed race for an unexpired Boonville commissioner seat ending in 2015 was Tony Reece, with 175 votes. There were eight write-in votes.
