The City of Greencastle will have a new clerk-treasurer come Jan. 1 after Republican Lynda Dunbar scored a 183-vote victory over incumbent Teresa Glenn Tuesday night in the 2011 Municipal Election.

In the only other contested race on the city ballot, Democrat Jinsie Bingham retained her Third Ward City Council seat with an 18-vote victory over political newcomer Jade Griffin, a Republican.

Bingham's victory means that the Democrats retain a 3-2 edge on the Greencastle City Council.

Bingham joins fellow Democrats Adam Cohen, First Ward, and at-large Councilor Phyllis Rokicki on the 2012-15 City Council, along with Republicans Mark Hammer, Second Ward, and Terry (T.J.) Smith, Fourth Ward.

Cohen, Rokicki, Hammer, Smith and Mayor Sue Murray were all unopposed in their bids for election, and thus were not included on Tuesday's ballot.
