Arrowsmith and Bankson win the night, but are unable to get to 50%
Are you ready for a runoff? How about two?
Commissioner Bill Arrowsmith amassed 4,489 votes to lead the way in the Seat #4 election, but with 47% of the votes it was not enough to avoid the runoff with first-time candidate Kyle Becker. Becker had 3,611 votes and 38% of the total. Upstart Young Kim kept both candidates from getting the needed majority by claiming 1,464 votes (15%).
In Seat #3, Doug Bankson edged Commissioner Sam Ruth with 3,875 votes (41%) to Ruth's 3,426 (36%). They are headed to a runoff as well because of a surprising performance by first-time candidate Alice Nolan, who received 2,148 votes (23%).
The runoff will be Tuesday, April 12th.
