Town of Lisbon - Incumbent Supervisor Ron Esser lost his bid for a second term on the Town Board in a three candidate campaign that attracted less than five percent of the town's voters in the Tuesday municipal primary election.
Political newcomer Ryan Lippert lead the way with 169 votes, about 55 percent of the ballots cast. Plan Commissioner Steve Panten, in his second bid for elected town office, earned about 30 percent or 92 votes. Esser finished a distant third with 14 percent or 43 votes.
Lippert and Panten will face each other in the April municipal election where another incumbent, Dan Fischer, will be challenged in his bid for reelection by William Swift. There were 305 of the town's 6,677 voters who went to the polls, a turn out of about 4.6 percent.
