Swan, 73, captured a sizable margin of the votes, 53 percent of the 577 votes cast. Myers, 45, won 28 percent of the votes.
Swan said he would like to thank his social media people who helped get the vote out, despite the bad weather. Swan said he knocked on 800 doors in the lead up to Tuesday's primary.
“It was cold and windy,” he said. “I usually waited until the warmest part of the day, which was hardly above zero, but people wre still very receptive.”
Swan thanked public works employees in Waukesha County for their efforts in clearing the roads.
Swan is a veteran of Waukesha County politics, serving for over 10 years as a county board supervisor. He is a retired science teacher and livestock farmer. He has lived in the district for 70 years and resides at W239 N4050 Swan Road, Pewaukee.
Myers serves the faithful in both Milwaukee and Waukesha. He previously said he decided to run for the county board seat to tackle wasteful spending. He has lived in the district for seven years and resides at 1922 Ruben Drive, Waukesha.
He said he was very excited and honored to be able to move forward to the general election.
“I look forward to serving the county,” he said.
According to the unofficial results, Swan secured 306 votes and Myers secured 162 votes. Shipping manager Michael Wandrey secured 105 votes.
