Runoff for Chief of Police

By  | 

On Saturday, May 1st, there will be a runoff election for Central's Chief of Police. The two candidates in this election will be Doug Browning and Wade Welborn. Because there were three candidates running for this position originally, it was possible that no candidate would receive over 50% of the votes on March 27. Indeed, after the votes were counted on Saturday, Doug Browning held 47% of the vote and Wade Welborn had picked up 43%. Since no candidate for this one position got over 50% of the votes, there will be a runoff between the two candidates who received the most votes (Mr. Browning and Mr. Welborn). You will continue to see political signs around Central for these two candidates only, and everyone is encouraged to come vote once again on May 1st for our Police Chief.
