Hart dominating Connell council race

Hebel, Hallman in dead heat for second place

CONNELL — Candidate Preston Hart has a commanding lead in the Aug. 1 primary election race for City Council Position No. 5. but it's a dead heat to see who will be the runner-up.

After the end of the first day of counting Tuesday, Hart had 108 votes, or 51.92%. His count exceeded the tally for the remaining two candidates, Patrice Hebel and Stephanie Hallman.

The women were tied for second with 48 votes each, or 23.08%.

Election officials said late-arriving ballots should break the tie before the election is certified Aug. 15.

Only the Top 2 candidates advance to the Nov. 7 general election.
