Somervell County voters chose Danny Chambers over challenger Jerry Lee in the Republican primary runoff for county judge.

Since there’s no Democratic challenger in November, Chambers most likely will become the next county judge.

Chambers received 968 votes, or more than 63 percent of the total votes, to Lee’s 564 votes, or 36.8 percent.

In the district and county clerk race, Michelle Williams edged Jeff Harris by 51.58 percent of the vote to 48.42 percent.

Susanne Graves won the Republican runoff for county treasurer with 60.11 percent to Carrie Knight-Mapes’ 39.89 percent.

Don Kranz took 52.36 percent of the vote for county commissioner, Precinct 4, compared with Mike Daniels’ 47.64 percent.

Somervell County also favored Dan Patrick for lieutenant governor, Ken Paxton for Texas attorney general, Sid Miller for state agriculture commissioner and Wayne Christian for railroad commissioner.

    To all those who gave their voice and voted in the 2014 Somervell County elections this does not mean our duty is over. Continued support and continued interest of our elected officials is so important. It is the duty of each of us to keep up with the “how, what and when” of the operation of our local government and hospital district. This now becomes our part of the job for each of us. We must stay informed and make the effort to attend our courts, public meetings and to carefully study our budgets. This information belongs to us, the people, and it is in our common interest to be informed to what is happening in our small center of this great world. To those who did not take the time to vote on all these important issues, your voice has not been heard.
