Potters edges out Sievers for Ketchum council

Runoff election scheduled 
for Gourlay, Corrock

Express Staff Writer

Incumbent Ketchum Councilwoman Christina Potters is heading for another four-year term after edging out challenger Rod Sievers by a narrow 23 vote margin Tuesday.

And for the first time, Ketchum voters will be asked to participate in a runoff election between two candidates, neither of whom received more than 50 percent of the total votes cast for their seat.

Anne Corrock and Baird Gourlay will face off on Dec. 4 in a runoff election at Ketchum City Hall for Seat 1. Gourlay amassed 460 votes. Corrock got 379, and Millie Wiggins received 193 votes. The 50 percent mark was 516.

The runoff election for candidates not receiving more than 50 percent of the votes is a provision that was added to the city’s election ordinance last winter as part of a controversial move to the election system for designated seats. Previously, the two candidates receiving the most votes won the two vacant seats.

Potters, sticking to campaign promises and her long-established record of public service with the city, said working for the people of Ketchum will continue to be her focus.

"The most important thing is protecting the integrity of our community, people helping people," she said.

During her campaign, Potters said citizens gave her a lot of feedback, which she intends to take back to the table at Ketchum City Hall.

Gourlay and Corrock, who will face off again Dec. 4, were not available for comment Tuesday night.
