Gaston, Catawba & Cleveland County Elections

Wayne Howard

Belmont Police Chief Chad Hawkins got 9,949 votes, 54.94% of the total, and beat Mt. Holly Police Chief Don Roper for the GOP nomination for Sheriff of Gaston County. Since no Democrat filed, Hawkins will be elected in November to succeed Alan Cloninger.

Cloninger's spouse, Cathy, won her bid for the Gaston County Commission Dallas Township seat with 10,703 votes (62.52% of the total) over School Board member Steve Hall. She will run unopposed in November and will succeed Tracy Philbeck in that seat.

Donnie Loftis won re-election to the District 109 seat in the NC House. He was appointed to fill an unexpired term there and has no opposition in November.

Craig Collins and Justin Davis won District Court judges races.

Roxann Rankin won re-election to the Clerk of Court job she has held for the past two years after taking over when the former Clerk retired.

In Catawba County, Mitchell Setzer easily won his race for the NC House District 89 seat he currently holds. Randy Isenhower won re-election to the Catawba County Commission. Robert Abernethy and Cole Setzer finished second and third. Current board member Sherry Butler finished fourth in the election for three seats.

Kim Sigmon won re-election as Clerk of Court.

Hank Guess was re-elected Mayor of Hickory.

In Cleveland County, Doug Bridges and Deb Hardin won the race for the two County Commissioner seats they now hold.

For the School Board, Danny Lee Blanton, Aaron Bridtes, Ronnie Grigg and Walter Spurling were the winners. The four Republicans will be contested by incumbent Democrats Phillip Glover, Dena Green and Coleman Hunt, as well as Meghan Hoppes in the November election.

Cleveland County voters also approved the county-wide sale of beer and wine. Until now, only incorporated towns have had sales of alcoholic beverages.
