Lowry defeats Nichols

Tom Lowry will serve two more years as mayor of Three Rivers, as he defeated Larry Nichols in Tuesday’s general election.

Lowry, 57, topped the 58-year-old Nichols, 268 votes to 206. Over the course of two tenures, Lowry has served as mayor for 14 years.

Meanwhile, Linda Gearhart won the commissioner-at-large position Tuesday and will start a two-year term to the seven-member board later this month.

The 65-year-old Gearhart topped Larry Matson, 288 to 164.

Matson, 70, has served on two different occasions as an appointed commissioner.

Commissioners Jared Hoffmaster and Diane Lee Haley-Clay were unopposed for two-year terms.
