Partin wins Bronson Council seat

-A A +A
By Sean Arnold

A former mayor of Bronson comfortably won a three-person race for a Bronson Town Council seat on Sept. 26.

Robert Partin, who previously served on the Council in the 1980s and 1990s, won against Virginia Phillips and Edith Brown with 98 votes. Phillips and Brown received 38 and 30 votes, respectively.

The open seat was previously occupied by Aaron Edmundson, who did not seek re-election.

Mayor Bruce Greenlee and Vice Mayor Beatrice Roberts were re-elected to their respective seats unopposed.

The election was originally scheduled for Sept. 12, but was moved due to Hurricane Irma.

“I’m kind of disappointed in the turnout, I was hoping for much more,” the 64-year-old Partin said. “But I know there were a lot of things going on in people’s minds with the storm and other stuff.”

Partin is a third-generation Bronson resident who comes from a timber industry family. He recently retired from the insurance industry. Partin has a degree in forestry.

He says a lot has changed since he first served for Bronson, but the overarching goal remains the same.
