Democratic challenger Casey Tighe upset incumbent Republican John Odom by 738 votes in their race for a seat on the county commission, a contest so close the results weren’t finalized until two weeks after Election Day.
Tighe becomes only the second Democrat in more than a decade to join the three-member commission, in a stunning win for a political newcomer in a county that has traditionally leaned Republican.
“I'm happy with the outcome,” Tighe said. “I guess I can say I'm pleased with the way it turned out.”
