WAVERLY – In the May 1 Waverly Mayoral race, Angela McPhaul defeated the incumbent, Walter Mason, 365-190.  McPhaul ran with a full slate of candidates for Town Council.  The entire slate, consisting of Allen Bernstorf, Jonathan Butts, Franklin Cox, Miriam Edwards, and Clyde Johnson, also defeated the incumbents.  

There was a steady stream of voters throughout the day, and at 3 p.m., William Jenkins, Voter Registrar for Sussex County, spoke of the large turnout already evident at that time, and how impressed he was with all the hard work done by both candidates.

“I am very impressed with the interest voters are taking –  in seeing so many people involved,” Jenkins said. “I know how much trouble it is to run for office, so I’m impressed to see how hard these people have worked.  As important as this election is, this participation is what I really want to see.  It’s the voter involvement.  I’d rather see this than people complaining after the elections, saying they don’t like it.”
