Ronald Evans won the five-way race in the Milford board seat contest this evening. Unofficial vote results give Evans 292, Michael McKain 124, Jason Miller 96, and Michael Firch 79 votes. Congrats to Ronald Evans! This was the board seat race with the most contestants in the state. I imagine there were a ton of signs in the district the past few weeks. I eagerly await to see what happens with Evans on the board down in Milford!
