ELLSWORTH — There’s going to be a new sheriff in town for the first time in 34 years. In a close vote, Republican Scott Kane took Tuesday’s primary race with 2,232 votes, 166 votes more than opponent Alan Brown, who had 2,066.
The winner of the primary contest is virtually certain to succeed Sheriff Bill Clark, as there were no Democratic candidates.
