INDEPENDENCE — After several months of heated debates and passionate campaigning, Grayson County citizens have chosen who they want to lead their local government beginning in 2016.
When it came to county officials, voters stuck with the candidates they knew. In three contested races, voters chose incumbents to serve another term.
Circuit Court Clerk Susan Herrington, a Republican, retained her seat in a race against Democratic challenger Bobby Williams. Herrington received 3,080 votes (75 percent) to Williams’ 1,046 votes (25 percent).
