Marble retains Leone as mayor

Marble Mayor Bob Leone was re-elected to his post Tuesday in a 35-12 win over challenger Mike Evans in Tuesday’s municipal election

Voters also re-elected Trustee Wayne Brown with 30 votes and elected Robert Pettijohn with 25 votes to serve on the town Board of Trustees. Both were uncontested.

All were elected to four-year terms.

The election leaves two seats open on the Board of Trustees, which may now be filled by appointment, according to town clerk Karen Mulhall.

Voters also agreed to sell the old Town Hall in a 32-16 vote. Marble residents already planned to move Town Hall functions to the historic Marble City State Bank building once renovations are complete this summer.

This vote gives trustees the okay to sell the old building, a drafty two-story house that lacks running water.

Marble voters also abolished term limits for town officials in a 28-19 vote.
