Bearth on County Board win: 'It's just gratifying'
Voters ousted Washington County Board Commissioner Bill Pulkrabek from office last week, opting for another Oakdale man with a long history of public service.
Ted Bearth defeated Pulrkabek in the District 2 race for commissioner, winning 52 percent to 47 percent.
"It's just gratifying that people put their faith and trust in me," Bearth said. "And it came home."
The win brings an end to Pulkrabek's run on the board, to which he was first elected in 1998.
