Republicans sweep two Greene County Commission races

Greene County’s commission will stay in all-Republican hands as voters elected both GOP candidates to the county’s governing body.

Rusty MacLachlan, who owns a construction company and is the past president of the local Home Builder’s Association, led former elementary school principal Wes Zongker in the western district race by a 2-to-1 margin with 74 of 79 precincts reporting.

At the same time, incumbent John Russell, who was appointed to the commission following the election of Sen. Lincoln Hough to the state legislature, led former               Democratic state representative and educator Sara Lampe with more than 55 percent of the vote in the eastern district.
