Donna Beverage won a second term as Union County commissioner. 

LA GRANDE — Union County Commissioner Donna Beverage has won a second and final term.

Beverage, of Union, defeated challenger Michael Barry of Imbler for the race of Position 3 on the county board. Beverage received 4,881 votes for 64.2% of the total, while Barry received 2,698 votes for 35.5%.

“I am humbled and honored that I will be able to serve Union County for another four years,’’ Beverage said.

Barry said the COVID-19 pandemic made it hard for his campaign to get momentum because he was never able to speak before groups or go door-to-door stumping for votes. Barry also said the hotly contest four-candidate race for Union County Sheriff made it harder to get the attention of voters.

"It sucked most of the energy out of the race," he said.
