BELGRADE – Voters on Tuesday chose Carol Johnson to fill a vacant board seat, according to unofficial results provided by chief executive Anthony Wilson.
Johnson received 650 votes and his opponent Nicholas Alexander received 521 votes.
At a candidates’ forum last month, Johnson said she strongly believes in civic engagement and wants to help Belgrade move forward. She said a key issue facing the city is maintaining and improving the quality of the region’s lakes, as they are a boon to the local economy.
Johnson said she would be interested in using federal funding from the US bailout to improve water quality without affecting the city’s budget.
