Jane Tabb wins GOP primary for Jefferson County Commission

May 08, 2012

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. — Jane Tabb, a former Jefferson County Commissioner, held off political novice Reese Claybaugh in Tuesday’s Republican primary with a comfortable margin of 1,401 votes over the 1,027 that Clabaugh got in his bid to win the nomination, according to unofficial returns.

Tabb, who served on the commission from 2001-06, heads into a Nov. 6 rematch with incumbent Democratic Commissioner Frances Morgan.

Morgan had no Democratic primary opponent.

Morgan won her six-year term in 2006 by beating Tabb.

Both candidates own farms in the Middleway Magisterial District.

Morgan’s was the only seat on the five-member board that came open this year.

County commissioners earn about $36,000 a year.
