November General Election Results for Prowers County, Stagner’s In and 2A is Out



These are the latest unofficial election results from the Prowers County Clerk and Recorder’s Office.  An official verification of the tally will be issued by the Clerk’s office at a later date.

The race for Mayor for the City of Lamar was won by incumbent Roger Stagner who received  883 votes to his challenger, Felix Dias who received 744 in the general election balloting.  Dias had been a former Lamar City Councilmember who stepped down after moving from the district he represented.  The position of Mayor for the City of Lamar is at-large which means no specific district is in question for the ballot and carries a two year term.

Residents of the City of Lamar voted against Ballot Issue 2A which sought to collect a 5% motel room tax rented within the city limits. The vote was 811 against and 726 in favor.  The question was modeled after the current 2% motel room tax which is levied throughout the entire county.  With this passage, the proponents of the measure estimated as much as $260,000 in new revenue could be used to promote Lamar as a destination for tourism activities as well as gatherings, conventions and entertainment and sporting events.

Oscar Riley was unopposed in Ward 2 for a new, four year term and Kirk Crespin was also unopposed for his four year term in Ward 1. There were no candidates for the four year term for Ward 3 which will be left vacant after Keith Nidey’s end of term in office.  The Lamar City Council will probably advertise for letters of interest and will make an appointment at a later date for the position which will come with an initial one-year term.

There was only one contested race on the Lamar School District Re-2 Board for a four year term serving District A between Cade Spitz and Rod Dunn. Rod Schwartz decided not to run for re-election.  Rod Dunn received 1,039 votes and Cade Spitz received 864.  The other current board members were unopposed for the November election.  They are:  Lanie Meyers-Miriles for a two year term in District B, Connie Jacobsen for a two year term in District C, Nancy Winsor for a four year term in District E and Chris Wilkinson for a four year term in District G.

There were seven candidates for four positions on the Wiley School District RE-13 JT, Board of Education. They were Neil Mauch, Bradley Lubbers, Danielle Wollert, Clint Bean, Jeremy Summers, Josh Weimer and Chad Krentz.  The four highest votes went to:  Mauch-209; Weimer-161; Lubbers-153 and Krentz-147.

Thank you to the staff at the Prowers County Clerk and Recorder’s Office for their efforts in conducting the November General Election.
