Washington Clerk-Treasurer Beth McGookey and City Councilman At-Large David Dahl will continue to serve the public for another term Tuesday night.

McGookey, running on the Republican ticket, collected 2,105 votes to Democrat Lauri Jansen’s 684 votes.

“I really appreciate the people who came out to vote. Every vote is important,” said McGookey. “I’ll continue to do what I’ve been doing for the last four years — work hard for the citizens of Washington.”

Dahl, a Republican, collected 1,725 votes.

“I’m grateful and humbled by the show of support,” said Dahl, who said he’s looking forward to working with mayor-elect David Rhoads and other members of the council again. “We have a great team in place.”

Fellow Republican Ken Showalter snagged the other at-large council seat. He tallied 1,397 votes.

“I’m really looking forward to being able to serve the community and helping Washington continue to prosper and have future growth,” said Showalter. “I’m truly honored by the trust you have placed in me and I am very enthusiastic to get to work. I know I have big shows to fill and I promise I will give it my all.”

Dahl and Showalter defeated Democrat challengers Ernie Evans who had 1,221 votes and Ron Critchlow who had 634 votes.
