Ernie Scherer of Pleasanton, who was found brutally murdered with his wife on March 14 in their home, has been elected posthumously to the Alameda County Republican Central Committee.
Scherer had received 4,758 votes as of Monday’s tally at the Alameda County election web site.
Voters were to choose six people among nine candidates and Scherer came in third place behind David Latour and Douglas Miller.
The Central Committee must now vote to appoint someone to fill the vacancy.
In order of votes, the other candidates were: Brian Eschen, Deslar Patten, Christopher Kuhn, Daniel Byards, Andrew Latour and Gregg Byars.
The police still have no arrested any suspects in the Scherer murder case, according to a recent story in the Contra Costa Times.
