Incumbent Dan Wolk and newcomers Lucas Frerichs and Brett Lee are officially the winners of the 2012 Davis City Council election.
The Yolo County Elections Office certified the vote Tuesday morning after tallying mail ballots dropped off at the polls on Election Day and provisional ballots.
Wolk, 34, received 10,212 votes and won every precinct in the city. An attorney for Solano County, Wolk was appointed to the City Council in February 2011 after Don Saylor vacated his seat for the Yolo County Board of Supervisors.
Frerichs, 32, finished second with 6,850 votes. He chairs the Planning Commission and works as a policy consultant in the Legislature focusing on natural resource issues.
Lee, 46, placed third with 6,355 votes. He works as an industrial engineer for FedEx and also holds a degree in financial advising.
The two newcomers will replace Sue Greenwald, 64, and Stephen Souza, 56, who finished fourth and fifth, respectively. Greenwald, a 12-year council veteran, received 6,074 votes. Souza, a two-term council member, trailed with 5,736 votes.
The three winners will be sworn into office before their first City Council meeting on July 10. As the leading vote-getter, Wolk will be appointed mayor pro tem and will advance to the mayor’s seat in 2014. As the top vote-getter in 2010, Joe Krovoza will continue as mayor until then.
Greenwald and Souza’s last council meeting will be June 26.
