Voters pick Paonessa, 3 newcomers for council seats

CHARLES TOWN – Nearly twice the number of residents took part in last week’s Charles Town City Council election than in 2013, according to Kiya Tabb, city clerk.

The results: Mark Reinhart and Wayne Clark lost their bids for re-election and former councilman Don Clendening will not return to office.


Tabb said 624 voters cast their ballots compared to 388 ballots cast in the 2013 election.

Early voting results were higher, too, with 234 votes cast in 2013 compared to 366 in this year’s election.
