Wasco County Election: Ellis & Kramer Win; City Charter Revisions Pass

Wasco County voters have decided to make a change in the District Attorney’s office.  Local defense attorney Matthew Ellis unseated Eric Nisley with over 72 percent of the vote, 5,679 to 2,115.  Nisley has been Wasco County’s District Attorney for nearly 20 years, but had recently been surrounded by controversy that resulted in a 60-day suspension from practicing law from the state that he had recently completed.  Steve Kramer won re-election to position two on the Wasco County Commission, receiving 4,043 votes to 3,671 for challenger Marcus Swift.  Kramer won his third four-year term on the Commission.  In The Dalles, revisions to the City Charter that include eliminating using zones for City Council representation and making the Mayor’s term four years beginning in 2022 was approved easily.  2,640 said yes to 1,409 no.  In the three-way primary for Sherman County Justice Court Judge, Ron McDermid received 329 votes, Deanna Christiansen 282, and Geremy Shull 190.
