After a series of appearances, campaign events and forum discussions, incumbent Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton has received the Republican nomination for Mayor of Crawfordsville.

Barton’s victory over opponent Johnathan M. Pickett was a landslide. Barton claimed 1,096 votes overall, and Pickett picked up 243. Barton’s campaign focused on staying on the path that Barton set for the city during his first term, especially with regards to economic development and maintaining the young adult demographic. Pickett ran on views congruent with the beliefs of the Tea Party, which include limited government involvement in the lives and businesses of citizens.

“It’s exciting, and I feel that I’ve really been trying to listen to the public all along, and you wonder are you hearing them correctly or not, are you just hearing a fragment of the population, and I think that today we saw that we do have a pretty read on what they want to see happen in this community and they reaffirmed that they’re behind what we’re doing,” Barton said.
