Wheaton leads Hire in schools superintendent race


Here are the Tulare County election results (with about 8,000 ballots left to count):
County Superintendent of Schools— Craig Wheaton, frontrunner, will face off against Tim Hire in the November election. 
County Supervisor-4th District— In this district (that includes Woodlake), where longtime Supervisor Steve Worthley is retiring, if the current margin continues, it appears Eddie Valero from Cutler-Orosi will be elected with a majority. 
Assessor-Clerk/Recorder— Roland Hill, the incumbent in this non-partisan race — who had one challenger, Brad Stailey — will be elected for another term. Early returns show Hill with 67 percent of the vote.
Auditor-Controller/Treasurer-Tax Collector— The appointed incumbent  Cass Cook ran unopposed and received 98 percent of the votes to date.  
District Attorney— Incumbent Tim Ward received 66 percent of the votes counted so appears on his way to re-election.
Sheriff-Coroner— Mike Boudreaux, the incumbent, ran unopposed so has been re-elected.  
Board of Equalization-1st District— Connie Conway (R), former Tulare County supervisor, is in third place, so it is not likely she will qualify for the November runoff election. Tom Hallinan  (D) and Ted Gaines  (R) will face  off in November to see who administers California’s taxes.
