Lolley takes Sheriff’s race

- Mosley holds tentative 6-vote lead over Lucus

By Dee Ann Campbell
Sun-Advocate Publisher

BUTLER – Choctaw County voters gave Scott Lolley the win over incumbent Tom Abate in the Choctaw County Sheriff’s race on Tuesday, with Lolley earning 53.14% of the vote in the Democratic primary run-off election, but the District 4 County Commission race results are still tentative.

Just over 41% of the county’s 10,702 registered voters turned out to cast ballots in the run-off, with two local races up for grabs. In the Sheriff’s race, Lolley pulled in a total of 2,362 votes to Abate’s 2,083.

The two candidates competed in the runoff after a three-candidate race – including Lolley, Abate, and Lee Henry McGrew -- in the June 3 Democratic primary did not yield more than 50% of the vote for any candidate. With no Republican or Independent opponent in the General Election in November, Lolley will take the seat.

In the race for District 4 Commissioner, Mack Mosley topped Marlon Lucus by a scant 6 votes, gaining 605 to Lucus’s 599. But with 15 provisional ballots yet to be counted, the results could change before a candidate is officially certified as winner.

He had gained re-election to the post in 2012 and had approximately four years remaining to his term.
