Mathers over Moe — again

Incumbent commissioner ‘relieved’ by voters’ decision

Moffat County Commissioner Tom Mathers said he knew exactly why county voters chose him to serve another four years in the District 3 seat during Tuesday’s general election. “It was my honesty,” he said. Mathers, 61, the incumbent District 3 commissioner, defeated write-in candidate Kerry Moe by 2,633 votes. He received 3,271 votes, or about 84 percent, to Moe’s 638 votes, or about 16 percent.

He received 1,197 votes, or 51.04 percent, while Frank Moe received 1,148 votes, or 48.96 percent.
