Randolph voters keep Mayor

RANDOLPH — Dwayne Schutt, the incumbent in the Randolph Mayor race, faced two write-in candidates.
Schutt garnered the most votes with 175. Tim Schmit had 105 votes; Buck Harris 41.
Schutt is excited to be able to serve the community of Randolph for a second term.
“I want to thank those who supported me and voted for me,” Schutt said. “The City Council and myself will work to get the Flood Plain resolved and also get other issues taken care of. We will move forward into the future.”
The results of the election will not slow Tim Schmit down.
“My plans won’t change. I still plan on helping grow and build the Randolph community,” Schmit said.
Schmit and his partners who own Schmit Home Solutions, recently developed a business model for local residents to participate in a profit sharing plan to build homes in Randolph.
No matter what the outcome of the mayor race proved to be Buck Harris had already made up his mind to continue to stay involved in the Randolph community.
“I plan to continue to find ways to serve Randolph and will continue to attend City Council meetings. People that voted for me knew what I stood for. Others will gain trust in me as they get to know me,” Harris said.
Harris said this loss doesn’t mean his thoughts of public service are done.
“I am considering running for a spot on the City Council and become more directly involved with individual issues that need attention. I want to drive forward with integrity, leadership traits and my experience to continue to set myself apart from other condidates.”
Harris moved to the Randolph area close to four years ago and has found that he really like the community and plans on  staying here for a long time.
