Final Carbondale election results

Carbondale voters re-elected Trustee Russ Criswell and elected Alice Hubbard Laird, Ed Cortez, Stacy Patch Bernot and John Foulkrod to the Board of Trustees in the election Tuesday.

Voters also approved two ballot questions that will secure funding for recreation projects in the community. The first question makes permanent the town’s 0.5 percent sales tax for recreation, and the second question authorizes the town to issue up to $2.6 million in bonds to fund recreation projects and open space purchases.
