Schepler, Worden Win Reelection In Edgemont

 Yesterday was a good day for incumbents in Edgemont as they won the two contested city elections.

       Mayor Carla Schepler easily topped challenger Arnold Harper 113-84 while Bob Worden held onto his Ward 2 city council seat with a 48-23 win over former mayor Carl Shaw. 

      The other 4 Edgemont city council races in yesterday’s election were unopposed with incumbent Roger Horton in Ward 4 and council newcomers Cindy Milburn and Bill Bethel in Ward 1 and Lori Weiser in Ward 3.

      While voters in Edgemont and a number of other towns across South Dakota went to the polls yesterday, those in Hot Springs and some other communities won’t cast ballots for city or school board positions until June 8th,
