Riley Wins Re-election; Taylorsville is getting a new Mayor


Officials continue to count and check write-in votes, but it’s safe to declare the winners of the 2018 Spencer County election.

Incumbent County Judge Executive John Riley, a Republican, won by a large margin over Democratic challenger Bobby Smith.
