Meyer captured nearly 59 percent of the vote while Theberge was able to receive just over 41 percent.
Theberge said she felt low voter turnout was the key reason the election turned out the way it did. "They were able to turn their support out and not enough of mine came out," she said. "With very low voter turnout, these things can happen."
Theberge wished Meyer well in his future campaign and wanted to thank all of her supporters and those who have helped her with this campaign and her other campaigns throughout the years. "I’d just like to thank everyone that assisted and supported me throughout the community," she added.
Meyer said Tuesday’s results are "indicative that the voters of the county want to see more constrained government spending and more emphasis on growing business in Gloucester County. Those were my two themes the whole time."
