Jackson County Election Results

You probably already know the national election results but the Southern is kind enough to post the results for Jackson County A few things I found interesting:

For the first time in recent memory, Jackson County voted Republican for President. The Trump/Pence ticket won by 12 points.

Sheila Simon didn't even win in her home county, losing to Paul Schimpf by 45 votes.

People's concerns about "big government" didn't stop them from voting to create the Public Building Commission of Jackson County.

Despite making Carbondale's sales tax among the highest in the state and comparable to the sales tax in DuQuoin, it passed. Here's hoping that all the people living in the county come to shop in Carbondale, rather than driving to lower tax communities like Marion
