DEWEY BEACH, Del - The commissioner elections were held on Saturday. Mayor Dale Cooke, Paul Bauer and T.J. John E. Redefer III won the three available seats up for election. 
According to the Dewey Beach Board of Elections, Bauer received 311 votes, Cooke received 399 votes and Redefer received 417 votes. Jill Compello and Diane Hanson, a former mayor and current commissioner, were also running and received 309 and 359 votes respectively. 
Before the election, many signs across town said that a vote for Cooke and Hanson would be a vote for Marc Appelbaum, the town manager accused of sexual harassment, discrimination among other things.  On Thursday, the preliminary findings from the town's independent investigation into the claims were released. In those findings, the investigator said Appelbaum should be formally reprimanded for unprofessional behavior and be required to take anti-harassment and anti-discrimination training. However, he did not recommend suspension or termination for Appelbaum.
The newly elected commissioners will be sworn in for a two year term on Saturday.
