In the final tally, veteran Councilman-now-Mayor, Jess Talamantes, outpaced a field of seven candidates, including two other incumbents, to win re-election. Talamantes led the pack on election night and during the final count his vote tally grew. Councilman, Bob Frutos, had the majority necessary to win re-election in Tuesday’s count. However, with the addition of almost a thousand votes — his victory slipped away. Here are the final numbers.
