During the campaign, Jones promised to represent the people, not special interests.

“I‘m going to have to get more people to come out to vote and voice their opinion in order to get a seat,” he said. “It’s kind of hard to do all this stuff by yourself.”

Chief Judge Lillian Creger, of the Havelock East Precinct, said there were no glitches in the machinery at that precinct and voting went smoothly. 

Chief Judge Barb Whiteman, at the Havelock West Precinct, said there were no issues with voting machinery; however some voters complained that the polling place had changed from the auditorium to a side room off the gymnasium, causing some to have to make an extra walk to place their vote.

“I’m just happy for change and for improvements, something different than the last 30 years,” said voter Terry Morton.

Of 8,716 registered voters in Havelock, 950 voted for a voter turnout of 10.9 percent.

“I came and voted for mayor,” said Deborah Shirk. “I think they needed to get a younger mayor and get some more businesses to come into Havelock. I work in real estate. I just think we needed some changes. We need some more restaurants and I want so see Havelock grow.”
