As of 11:01 p.m. on Tuesday, November 08, 2011, unofficial vote counts show significant margins electing the new Boyne City Commissioners.
Delbert Gene Towne retained the partial term he was appointed to following the resignation of Dan Adkison this past summer. Towne ran for this seat unopposed with 299 votes, only 5 write-ins making up the balance.
The two full-term seats were the result of Mayor Chuck Vondra and Commissioner Mike Cummings both choosing not to seek another term. Competing for these seats were Mark Dole, Tom Neidhamer, and Derek Gaylord. Neidhamer took the top spot with 275 votes. Gaylord followed behind with 194 votes, leaving Mark Dole with 107 votes.
Commissioners Neidhamer, Towne, and Gaylord will be sworn in by Clerk Cindy Grice at the City Commission Meeting on November 15th, 2011 at 7:00 p.m, at which time the Mayor and Mayor Pro-Tem will be elected.
