Two challengers unseated the incumbents Tuesday night to win two available seats on the Mayer Fire Board.

Of the four candidates, David Baudek was the high vote getter with 730, or 30.45 percent. Ed Wesolowski received 24.57 percent with 589 votes in unofficial results as of press time. Incumbent Kristin LaRue received 557 votes with 23.24 percent and incumbent Joanne Coe got 509 votes for 21.23 percent.

LaRue wished the new board members good luck, saying that she hopes they achieve what they want on the board.

"I had two years," she said. "I felt like I accomplished a lot."

Coe also said she wished Baudek and Wesolowski well.

"Of course I still have some of the same concerns, about Mayer Fire's financial problems, liabilities, things like that," she said. "I'll still be around, I don't intend to not be paying attention. It's a big job and they have their work cut out for them. I want everyone to have the best representation they can, but I'm glad this entire election is over."

Baudek said he thanks the community for their support, and intends to do the best job he can for the district. Wesolowski was unavailable for comment after election results came in.

Mayer Fire Chief Glenn Brown said he appreciates the service of anyone who is willing to step up and volunteer for a political board.

"I appreciate the two years (LaRue and Coe) served, and I'm looking forward to the four years that the new board members will serve," he said.

Sorry guys but you dont have a clue what is really taking place here. This Fire Department is getting screwed because people like you cant see beyond your nose, or you are just to lazy to do anything about it.
