Mallett new East Spencer mayor

EAST SPENCER — Barbara Mallett will be East Spencer’s new mayor, according to unofficial counts. She got 188 votes, compared to 47 for her opponent, Robert Smith. Current Mayor John Cowan chose not to run for re-election.
The town also will gain a new alderman, Curtis Cowan, who appears to be the top vote-getter with 145 votes.
Incumbents John Noble and Theodore Gladden have been re-elected with 144 and 131 votes, respectively.
Leaving the East Spencer Town Board of Aldermen is Carlton Ellis, with an unofficial vote count of 62.
Following are challengers Titus King Sr., with 59 votes, and John L. Rustin, with 56. There were 55 write-in votes cast – not enough to elect write-in candidate Marshall Gore Jr.
These totals don’t include 13 provisional ballots and 18 absentee ballots for East Spencer, which will be counted later by the Rowan County Board of Elections.
