Farrell said the 5,000 hands he shook and 150 miles he walked paid off.

“I’m humbled and honored to serve Liberty Twp. Always have been,” he said. “To be re-elected and to get the most votes just goes to show if you get out and talk with the people and find out what their problems and concerns are and address those problems and concerns you can overcome any obstacle.”

Matacic said presenting the facts won re-election for her.

“I presented factual information on what we’ve done, where we’re headed and I left it in the hands of the voters,” she said. “I think they’ve spoken that they are happy with what we’re doing.”
