Longtime Locust Grove Supervisor and board chairman David Ingram lost his seat in Saturday’s GOP primary canvass.
It wasn’t even close: Ingram lost to challenger Lauren Yoder 205-143, sending a message to local incumbents that status quo isn’t cutting it with voters — a message that may also get delivered in a school board race where three incumbents face re-election.
Yoder, a local businessman, volunteer fireman and political newcomer, ran an aggressive house-to-house campaign in the district. His yard signs appeared throughout the district while Ingram’s campaign was not that visible.
