COMMISSIONERS conUnued from page one In unofficial election results posted late Tuesday night, Carrizales came away with 1,204 votes, or 20 per- cent of the 5,748 votes cast in the commission race. He was the leading vote-getter in Basin, Emblem, Greybull, Shell and Byron. Neves performed very well on his home turf, win- ning Burlington (by 13 votes over Carrizales), Otto and Hyattville en route to garn- ing 965 votes, or 16 percent of the votes cast. Lisa Kimsey was the only candidate who pre- vented Neves and Carriza- les from sweeping of the south, as she received the most votes in her home community of Manderson but finished with just 246 votes (4 percent). Keith Grant the Lovell, Cowley, Deaver and Frannie precincts by healthy margins. But it wasn't enough to over- come a poor showing in votes (8percent) for Dalton Banks of Cowley, 300 votes (5 percent) for Nash Jolley of Lovell, 251 votes (4 per- cent) for Joe Wildman of Manderson, 246 votes (4 percent) for Kimsey, 219 votes (4 percent) for Clay- county. Thank you Big Horn County:' For Neves, the triumph was especially sweet.

There was top vote-getter in the pri- mary election four years ago, when he garnered 1,985 votes and John Hyde lgot 1,789 to win the Repub- ican nomination that night in a much less contested race. "I am thankful for the support of the people of this county,' Carrizales said nothing negative about any of them:' Neves said it's tOO early to say what his goals for a first term would be, noting that a write-in candidate could still emerge on the Democratic side.
