Voters Tuesday elected incumbent Brooke County Magistrate Robin Hukill-Snyder to her first full term on the bench and selected newcomer Linda Viderman to join her.

Hukill-Snyder and Viderman emerged from a field of seven candidates to capture the Democrat nomination for the county's two magistrate seats.

Both expect to run unopposed in November's general election, since no Republicans filed in the race.

Unofficial vote totals were as follows: Hukill-Snyder, 2,601; Viderman, 1,065; Cathy Dillon, 966; Karen Stuck, 898; Calvin Heck, 719; George Lewis, 533; and Arthur Sullivan, 322.

Snyder had been elected to fill the unexpired term of the late Magistrate Deborrah Lunsford, while Viderman will replace Michael Allman, who made an unsuccessful run for county sheriff.

Snyder said she will continue to pursue her passion - fighting the local drug problem - by helping those who want help through the drug court program, educating the community and working together with residents to solve the problem.

"I'm very happy to continue serving the citizens of Brooke County. ... I'll keep on working hard for them like I have been doing," Hukill-Snyder said.

Viderman also said she was pleased with Tuesday night's results.

"I hope I will be able to live up to the expectations of the voters and provide them the level of honesty, competency and integrity that they expect," she said.
