Lisa Currie was reelected as Toms Brook mayor in Tuesday town elections.

Five candidates also ran for six seats open on the Town Council. The sixth seat will be filled by a write-in candidate.  

According to unofficial results from the Virginia Department of Elections, Currie was reelected as the Toms Brook mayor with 17 votes (73.91%). There were six write-ins.

"I did have some opposition with a write-in candidate, and I am honored to serve a second term as mayor of Toms Brook," Currie said. "I am honored the people of Toms Brook have chosen me for this position. Toms Brook has been my home for more than 30 years, and I love it. Being the mayor is not a title or something to be taken lightly. I respect the position and work hard to deliver the best to Toms Brook residents."

Currie also has served on the Shenandoah County School Board (2002-2010), and before that, she served on the Toms Brook Town Council (1992-2002).

In the Town Council race, incumbents Johanna O'Toole, Judy Pangle, Dawn Rinker and Michael Triggs were reelected, according to unofficial results. Lisa Keller-Nelson also won a Town Council seat.

Pangle and Rinker each had 22 votes (17.46%). O'Toole and Keller-Nelson each had 21 votes (16.67%). Triggs had 20 votes (15.87%). There were also 20 write-in votes.

Heather Sager and Paul Buckley did not run for reelection. Currie said that the sixth Town Council seat will go to Cena Hubbell, who agreed to be the write-in candidate. Hubbell is also on the town's Planning Commission.

Currie, who works at Lord Fairfax Community College as a professor, said she's looking forward to the next four years as mayor.

"Toms Brook has made great strides under the direction of this council," she said. "We have upgraded our office technology, entered an agreement with the Army Corps of Engineers for a stormwater management plan, published a pretty impressive town newsletter on an irregular but consistent basis, started a Christmas parade, held town cleanups annually, worked cooperatively with the county to provide part-time police protection, and within the few months entered a contract for a multi-phase project to repair sidewalks. This is our big project for the future. We hope to have our stormwater management plan by the end of the year, which will help us to plan for the future."
