Monument Town Trustee Don Wilson was elected mayor Tuesday night, besting fellow Trustee Jeffrey Bornstein by more than 300 votes, according to unofficial preliminary results released by Town Clerk Laura Hogan.

Wilson had 794 votes to Bornstein’s 462.

Three new trustees appeared to be Laurie Clark, with 786 votes; Kelly Elliot, with 686;  and Ron Stephens, with 666.

Jeff Lampman received 601 votes and Shea Medlicott, 584.  

The results will not be certified until April 12, Hogan said.

Neither Wilson nor Bornstein returned messages seeking comment.

Bornstein proposed a moratorium on housing developments on the town’s west side until its declining water resources are handled, but Wilson said such a move could push developers elsewhere.

In February, Bornstein was accused of unethically offering gifts to the town manager in pursuit of the town’s code enforcement officer position. He has denied the allegations, saying people mischaracterized his comments to Town Manager Chris Lowe, who’s on paid administrative leave during an unrelated investigation.

Monument Mayor Jeffrey Kaiser has said the allegations against Bornstein would constitute bribery if proven true.
