The Daily Record
The 2018 election of Douglas County Board of Commissioners resulted in all three incumbents returning for another term, bringing a wealth of collective knowledge to the county’s governing body.
Democrat James Cavanaugh, running for his second four-year term in District 2, was the only candidate who had faced an opponent.
Mary Ann Borgeson and P.J. Morgan, both unopposed Republicans, were also re-elected to the board.
Borgeson has served on the board since 1994. She was the first woman elected chair of the board and serves District 6. P.J. Morgan was elected to his third term in District 4.
Cavanaugh took the oath of office on January 3, with his wife Leslie at his side, by Douglas County Court Judge Craig McDermott (top).
Borgeson and Morgan were sworn in on January 8. Borgeson noted that this was the seventh time that Douglas County Court Judge John Huber had sworn her in. She was accompanied by her husband, Bob (middle).
Morgan stood with his wife, Annie, to take the oath administered by Douglas County District Court Judge Thomas Otepka (bottom).
The Douglas County Board has seven members who serve four-year terms and have staggered elections. The other members of the board are Mike Boyle, Chair Chris Rodgers, Mark Kraft and Clare Duda.
