Short wins Constable race

Larry Short was elected Precinct 2 constable Tuesday, defeating Mike Andrews by a vote of 539 to 396 in the Republican primary runoff.

In the May 29 primary, Short received 46.5 percent of the vote in the four-person race with 574 votes, and Andrews received 20.3 percent of the total vote. This time around, Short received 57.65 percent of the vote compared to 42.35 for Andrews.
