Bruhl, Holmes make the ballott

ADDISON COUNTY — Ron Holmes secured the Democrat nomination for Addison County high bailiff on Tuesday, topping Peter Newton by a 1,904 to 1,505 tally.
In another local election of interest, New Haven Democrat Taborri Bruhl received more than enough write-in tallies to appear on the General Election ballot for the position of Addison-5 House representative.
Bruhl needed to secure at least 25 write-in tallies on Tuesday to belatedly secure a spot on the Nov. 8 ballot to face Republican incumbent Rep. Harvey Smith, R-New Haven, for the seat that represents Bridport, New Haven and Weybridge. Bruhl earned 72 write-ins in Weybridge and 95 in his hometown of New Haven to clinch his participation in the General Election.
Holmes out-polled Newton in every Addison County town except Granville, Middlebury and Whiting. Holmes will now go on to face Republican Charles Clark Jr. on Nov. 8 for the position of high bailiff.
According to state statutes, a high bailiff is an elected county officer who may serve writs that the county sheriff is unable to serve. If an arrest warrant is issued against the sheriff, the high bailiff may arrest the sheriff. If the sheriff is confined or the office of sheriff is vacant, the high bailiff carries out the duties of the sheriff until the sheriff is released from confinement or one is appointed and sworn into office.
