Evergreen voters picked Janet Doyle and Peter Eggers to join the five-member board of directors of the Evergreen Park and Recreation District in a regular election Tuesday, May 6.

In winning the seat, Eggers regained the position he held from 1992 to 2004 before the two-term limit was in place.

Doyle got the most votes, with 417. Eggers was second with 309, and Richard Whitehill collected 89 votes.

Richard Wulf, the designated election official, said the turnout was average to maybe a little light for an election that didn’t involve a bond issue.

The results came in about 9 p.m. after a recount was performed to reconcile a discrepancy in the count, Wulf said.

A retired attorney, Doyle is president of the Evergreen Music Festival. She has lived in Evergreen for 10 years.

Eggers is a longtime Evergreen resident who has served on a multitude of community boards. Egger has chaired the Buchanan Park improvement executive committee since 2006.

Whitehill is a retired professor who moved to the area in 2003 and is a regular user of the rec district facilities.

Doyle and Eggers are replacing two outgoing board members. Geoff Wormer is ending his second four-year term and must bow out for at least one election cycle. Board president Jeff Knetsch decided not to seek a second term.
