After a seemingly endless political season, Trimble County voters spoke Tuesday and the results are in. Voters spoke loudly, too, with about 45 percent of registered voters going to the polls.
In Trimble County’s main contested races, Denny Jackson prevailed over challenger Steve Brierly to retain the mayor’s office in Milton. Jackson received 143 votes to Brierly’s 54 votes.
Jackson, who had served on the commission for more than a decade, was appointed mayor in October 2009 after the unexpected death of then-Mayor Donnie Oakley.
