WILLIAMS, Ariz. - The votes are in, and after the Aug. 26 primary election, incumbent Rob Krombeen has won the Republican nomination for Justice of the Peace of the Williams precinct.

Krombeen received 62.95 percent of the votes, defeating Jeff Brownlee, who received 36.85 percent of the 977 votes cast for this race.

Krombeen was elected to the Justice of the Peace position in 2010 and also serves as the Williams Magistrate. He thanked the public for its support in the election.

"The positive statements and what people related about the positive impacts that they'd experienced or seen with family members in the court was just very humbling and very encouraging that we're going in the right direction," he said. "If people have liked what they've seen in the court in the last four years, they're going to love the next four."

Krombeen also commended Brownlee for running a positive campaign.

"It's just really refreshing, especially in light of all the political mail and the robocalls I've received in the last few months, that local politics can remain civilized and free from the mudslinging that seem to be going on all around us," he said.

Krombeen will move on to the general election Nov. 4. No Democratic candidates ran for the Justice of the Peace position in the primary.

In other election news, Williams voters approved Proposition 402, the alternative expenditure limitation. Also known as the home rule option, the resolution passed with 70.91 percent of the 416 votes cast.

The alternative expenditure limitation allows the city to determine how much money it can spend in the next four years based on how much revenue will be available. If voters had not approved the home rule option, the city would have had to follow state-imposed expenditure limits, which would have reduced the budget by about $9.5 million next fiscal year.

The mayor and three city council members, who were running unopposed, were also reelected in the primary election. Mayor John Moore received 89.95 percent of the 398 votes cast.

In the city council race, Lee Payne received 34.32 percent of the votes, Don Dent received 32.31 percent of the votes, and Bernie Hiemenz received 29.92 percent of the votes.

State races

In the governor's race, Doug Ducey won the Republican nomination with 36.89 percent of the vote. He'll face Democratic candidate Fred DuVal, Libertarian candidate Barry Hess and Americans Elect candidate John Lewis Mealer in the Nov. 4 general election.

In the race for the Republican U.S. Congressional Representative in District 1, Andy Tobin led Gary Kiehne by a narrow margin: 35.65 percent of the vote compared to 34.83 percent. The winner will face Democratic candidate Ann Kirkpatrick in the general election.

In the race for State Senator for District 6, the late Chester Crandell won the Republican nomination. Crandell died Aug. 4 after being thrown from a horse, and the Republican Party will now choose a candidate to replace him on the general election ballot.

In the race for State Representative for District 6, Brenda Barton and Bob Thorpe won the Republican nomination. They'll face Democrat Lanny Morrison for the two available seats in the general election.

All election results are current as of press time.
