There were 237 votes cast. Of those Melinda McClendon took 202 votes and there were 35 write in votes for Richard Talley.
We had been hearing there was a write in push and understood it was for Richard Talley. He lost the last regular election against Mr. Forrester. When this vacancy occured he did not seek election but said if it was appointed by the Governor he would have sought the appointment.
