Hollar re-elected mayor of Montpelier

Posted: Updated:

The incumbent will keep his job as mayor of Montpelier.

The unofficial numbers from Montpelier are:

John Hollar-1,525
Gwendolyn Hallsmith-782

Lobbyist John Hollar is the incumbent. He faced Gwendolyn Hallsmith, the former Montpelier planning official who was fired by the city.

Some said the race got personal.

"I think it's a race that has a real choice," Hallsmith said. "I feel like I'm standing up for the citizens of the city and the citizens that don't make over $100,000 a year."

"I wouldn't characterize the race that way I think it unfortunate, because I tried to make this a campaign that's positive, that is about things that are happening in Montpelier, issues that people care about," Hollar said.

City Clerk John Odum ordered more ballots because of the mayor's race. He said turnout was steady, but a little on the light side. He thinks the cold have kept people away.
