With 17 out of 48 precincts reporting as of 11:25 p.m., the races for City Council and school board tightened, with challengers poised to make some inroads.
Challenger Robert Frutos continued to lead the six candidate field for City Council with 2,439 votes. Incumbents David Gordon and Jess Talamentes rounded out the top three, with 2,227 and 2,066 votes, respectively, city officials reported.
[Updated 11:37 p.m.: "It's still anybody's game. I'm just very honored and blessed people have confidence in my candidacy," Frutos said.]
Incumbent Dave Golonski was holding on at No. 4 with 1,817 votes. Dave Nos and Juan Gullien Jr. rounded out the field fifth and sixth place, respectively.
"You could always wish you could do more, knock on more doors," Guillen said. "At the very least, I hope I opened people's eyes to the dealings that go on in our City Council that just aren’t right."
