The Quay County Commission Friday affirmed the county’s vote counts from the Nov. 4 general election with no changes.

Russell Shafer, Republican, was elected Quay County Sheriff in the only contested race locally, beating Nathan Wallace, Democrat, by 100 votes, 1,379 votes to 1,279, a margin of 4 percent of the votes cast in the race.

In other action, the commission:

• Heard a request from Tenth Judicial District Attorney Tim Rose to name his office for former district attorney Vic Breen, the only district attorney in the state to be killed while in office. Breen was shot to death in the driveway of his home in December 1971. Rose also requested funds to set aside some space in the office’s lobby area as a memorial to Breen.

• Learned that the Rural 1 Fire Department had received approval from the state fire fund for a grant of $100,000 toward purchasing an “initial attack” vehicle for firefighting. The remainder of the price of the vehicle will be paid out of reserve funds, Richard Primrose, county manager, said.
