Bearth Defeats Pulkrabek for Washington County Board Seat

Ted Bearth won the Washington County District 2 seat against incumbent Bill Pulkrabek.

A new face will be representing District 2 of Washington County, according to unofficial results from the Minnesota Secretary of State. 

Ted Bearth unseated incumbent Bill Pulkrabek for the District 2 seat with 11,123 votes (52 percent). Pulkrabek received 10,054 votes (47 percent).

All 17 precincts reported their numbers just before 2 a.m. Wednesday.

Pulkrabek has served as a Washington County commissioner since 1999. Before that he was the mayor of Oakdale from 1995 to 1999. 

Pulkrabek underwent heavy scrutiny when he was involved in a domestic incident stemming from last year.

Bearth has also served as mayor of Oakdale and city council member for a combined total of 26 years. He is an active member of the Oakdale Veterans Memorial Committee and an Oakdale Park Board Commissioner.

All results are unofficial until verified by a canvassing board.

There are no words to describe how happy I am about this outcome. I wish Mr. Bearth all the best. Mr. Pulkrabek has no right or entitlement to take a position as a Washington County Commissioner. Mr. Bearth, you are a hero for stepping up and taking a positin which was available for someone who is engaged with the community, who is a person with values and high standards. Very pleased and relieved tonight!!! Congratuations Mr. Bearth!!!
