Wilmington City Schools tax defeated; Sugar Grove Cemetery tax passes


News Journal staff



Wilmington City Schools district voters rejected a renewal of an existing 1 percent income tax, with rounded results showing 52.4 percent opposed to 47.7 percent in favor.

But across Clinton County, voters supported three proposed tax increases on Tuesday’s ballots, while also continuing to back current tax issues by renewing them.

In a special congressional off-year election, Sabina native and Republican Mike Carey easily carried Clinton County over Democrat Allison Russo. As of press time, the Associated Press had not called the congressional race district-wide.

Below are the unofficial Clinton County vote numbers.
