BELFAST, Maine — Incumbent Waldo County Judge of Probate Susan W. Longley will serve another term.
With only the town of Waldo left to report, she had 54.8 percent of the vote to Republican challenger Randy A. Mailloux’s 45.2 percent.
“I’m honored, and it’s my intention to honor the honor with good, hard work for the families of Waldo County in the work I do,” Longley said.
Mailloux had left to go moose hunting early Wednesday and couldn’t be reached for comment.
The race for the Waldo County probate court position was hard-fought, with hundreds of signs placed around the county for the candidates.
Mailloux, a local attorney, had held the position from 1997 until 2004, when he was ousted by Longley. She had served as a Maine state senator before holding the part-time position.
The judge of probate handles guardianships, conservatorships, adoptions, name changes and administration of wills from the probate court house on Spring Street in Belfast.
