Guice Receives GOP Nod, Brown Defeats Chappell


May 10, 2018

Editor’s Note: The following results are unofficial and will not be certified by the Board of Elections until May 18.

As things stand, David Guice heads to the Nov. 6 general election as one of the two Republican Party nominations for the Board of Commissioners. Who will join him on the ballot is still to be decided.

Guice received 1,645 votes Tuesday. Danny Hein received 1,356, and Will Cathey received 1,351. At least 26 provisional ballots are scheduled to be counted on May 18, canvass day, and could impact the final outcome.

As previously reported, two Republicans will face unaffiliated candidates Davis Whitfield-Cargile and Mike West for two open commissioner seats in November.

Clerk of Superior Court

Incumbent Kristi Brown handily won the Republican Party primary for clerk of court Tuesday, receiving 2,091 votes to Jason Chappell’s 410. Brown faces no Democratic challenger in November.

“Beyond blessed is how I feel,” Brown said Wednesday. “I would like to thank my God for his strength and guidance during this process. I received so much love and encouragement from my family, my work family, my church family and the community during the course of this campaign. I am grateful for each of you. I also would like to thank Jason Chappell and his family for their service to our community. I wish him well as he continues to represent us, the citizens, as one of our county commissioners.”

Hollocker received 1,025 votes in Transylvania and 5,217 in the district. Newman faces no Democratic challenger in November.
