Yarbrough voters reject Tech School
by C.F. David
Ernest Eslinger, Republican candidate for Cimarron County commissioner District 3, squeaked by District 3 employee and Republican Candidate Mark Blackburn 49-43 on Tuesday.
Eslinger will now face incumbent Bill Percifield in November.
The two last faced off for the job four years ago when Percifield defeated Eslinger to fill the spot vacated when Susie Williams retired.
Eslinger's platform is economic development.
Thumbs down on Tech School
At a vote of 3-2, Cimarron County voters in the Yarbrough School district nixed a proposed tax levy for a Tech School to be built in Guymon.
