Ron Christopher was elected again Tuesday night.

Only this time, it was for a different board.

Christopher, who has held the Salem-Keizer Transit subdistrict No. 2 seat since May 2009, ran against John Rizzo for the Keizer Rural Fire Protection District Position 1 seat and won handily.

Results from late Tuesday night showed Christopher garnering 1,729 (61 percent) of the votes, compared to 1,070 (37.8 percent) votes for Rizzo.

“I’m very pleased and very happy about it,” Christopher said Wednesday morning.
