JANE LEW -- The town of Jane Lew elected Dianne Hicks to a second term as mayor in Tuesday's municipal election. Running unopposed, Hicks won with 59 votes.
She didn't campaign too hard, she said, because everybody "knows each other" in Jane Lew.
The city council member from 1987-1999 said the town was able to recently secure some grants for the city park. In the future, she said, she hopes to beautify local property and work on other projects.
In other races, James F. Minutelli will serve another term as recorder, winning with 59 votes.
David Cottrill, 56 votes, Jay H. McCarty, 53, Cynthia Swiger, 53, Debbie West, 46, and Homer Parsons, 60, were elected to city council.
Candidate William D. Woodson was defeated with 25 votes.
Top vote-getter Parsons said he hopes to get more of Jane Lew involved in city issues and wants to improve the city park for children.
"It's been a pretty good race," Parsons said. "I'm looking forward to working with the people of Jane Lew."
Twenty-five percent of registered voters in Jane Lew came out to vote.
Minutelli said that 67 total ballots, out of 239 registered voters, were received at the polls.
The number is down by 25 percent, since half of Jane Lew's registered voters came out in the 1999 election, Minutelli said.
