In one of the only competitive races in last week’s primary elections, Daniel Janowski beat incumbent Dan Bronke in the race to be the Republican candidate for Washington County state’s attorney.
County voters chose Janowski by a wide margin. The challenger tallied 1598 votes to Bronke’s 798.
With no Democrat on the ballot in November, Janowski is all but assured to be state’s attorney starting in January.
It was the second straight time a Republican incumbent was beaten by a challenger in the primary race for state’s attorney. Bronke edged Heath Hooks in to win the Republican nomination in 2016 and went on to beat Democrat Celeste Korando in the general election.
Voters in the Addieville Fire Protection District overwhelmingly approved a ballot measure to issue bonds for the construction of a new fire house. The ballot measure passed with 79.75 percent voting yes.
