Jackson re-elects Ward 4 incumbent

Wednesday, April 5, 2006

Jackson's Ward 4 voters returned Alderman Joe Bob Baker to his seat for two more years.

Baker received 117 votes to defeat Thomas P. Gleeson III, who had 24 votes.

"I feel real good about it," Baker said about being re-elected. "It was a fair turnout, and I'm real pleased."

Baker has served on the Jackson Board of Aldermen since 1986. This was Gleeson's fourth time to run for an alderman seat.

Three other incumbents ran unopposed in Jackson's municipal elections. Ward 2 Alderman David Reiminger, Ward 3 Alderman Larry Cunningham and Ward 1 Alderwoman Barbara Lohr will serve two-year terms.
