State-wide elections dominated the Tuesday primary runoff ballots, but two races within Logan County were decided, including the District 1 county commissioner race and District 38 House of Representatives.
Despite dropping the primary vote in June, District 1 County Commissioner Marven Goodman earned the votes in the Republican runoff to win re-election over Mark Sharpton.
Goodman received 58 percent of the vote (1,356 – 981) from the six precincts.
With no Democrat, Libertarian or Independent seeking office, Goodman will continue in the commissioners role.
“I am honored to be selected to serve another four-year term as District 1 Logan County Commissioner,” Goodman said in a social media post. “I would like to thank everyone who endorsed and supported me in this effort.”
In 2014, Goodman was first elected into office following a narrow win (46 votes) over Sharpton, who was serving as the commissioner at the time.
State Representative John Pfeiffer (R-Orlando) 58.93 percent of the vote (2,786 – 1,942) over his opponent Brian Hobbs to remain the Representative for District 38.
“It is an honor for me to represent our district each day,” Pfeiffer said. “I look forward to continuing to work to improve our state and serve north central Oklahoma.”
Pfeiffer, whose district includes Logan, Garfield, Grant, Kay and Noble counties, was first elected in 2014.
Pfeiffer, who did not draw a Democrat, Libertarian or Independent opponent, currently serves as the Assistant Majority Whip for the Oklahoma House.
