Hamilton County voters chose to reelect Tim Boyd to the Hamilton County District 8 Commission seat, taking down opponent and East Ridge mayor Brent Lambert.

Boyd won with 63% of the vote - 1,203 votes to Mayor Lambert's 714.

The next morning, at the weekly Hamilton County Commissioners' meeting, Boyd says he "slept well last night."
