Voter Turn Out: Less than 19 % of registered voters in Liberty County voted in this week’s Republican and Democrat primary elections. Information from the office of Liberty County Clerk Paulette Williams shows 7,191 county residents voted in the Republican primary with another 616 casting a ballot on the Democrat side. That’s a total of 7,807 voters. The Liberty County Voter Registrar’s office reports there are 41,633 registered voters countywide.

DaytonSchoolBoard: At their meeting February 18th, Dayton School Trustees voted unanimously to extend the contract of new school superintendent Dr. Jessica Johnson through 2017. According to School Board President Luke Chachere the move was essentially a way to move Dr. Johnson onto a regular superintendent contract evaluation schedule. He said this contract extension did not include an evaluation of the superintendent’s job performance, since she has only been on the job a few months. The state does not require a performance review at this time.

She apparently dozed off running into the rear of Cpl. Ott’s county unit. Neither Ms. Swift, nor her passenger were injured. The Department of Public Safety Troopers investigated the crash. Ms. Swift was charged with no Texas Driver’s License and for failure to control speed.
