Beu also was disappointed in the low voter turnout, explaining that the 307 votes cast constitutes less than 2 percent of residents living in Ward 1.
“It’s a little sad. I’m not saying the outcome would have been any different had there been more voters. I’m just a little disappointed in the low turnout,” Beu said.
Beu continued by talking about his conversation with both Krows and Britton following the final returns on the election.
“I called them both and thanked them for a good race and congratulated Mr. Krows on winning the election. I look forward to Mr. Krows’ third term as city councilman,” he said.
Robert Krows was in high spirits following his win.
“We are impressed with the numbers. It’s nice any time you get 75 percent of the vote. It just goes to show the people are happy with their representation and they think the city is moving in the right direction,” Krows said.
When asked his perspective on the low turnout, Krows had a realistic view.
“It’s about what we figured. The voters just went through a presidential election and then a big bond issue and now a city council election with only one ward. So, the small turnout is no surprise,” he said.
Krows also was impressed with the respectful tone of the race and expressed appreciation for his opponents’ desire to serve the people of Moore.
“I’m always impressed with anyone who wants to serve on the city council. It’s a lot of time to spend for almost no money, so anyone who wants to devote their time to the people of their community is impressive,” he said.
