Yolo County elections officials finalize local results

From page A2 | June 12, 2014 |

Final vote totals released Wednesday by the Yolo County Elections Office do not change the outcome of the Davis City Council election or the approvals of Measures O and P.

Robb Davis and Rochelle Swanson were elected to the two open seats on the council, with the two of them pulling away slightly from third-place finisher John Munn.

Davis finished with 6,294 votes, or 43.1 percent of the total, and Swanson captured 5,306 votes, or 36.3 percent of the total. Munn’s 4,893 votes represented 33.5 percent.

Sheila Allen (3,912, 26.8 percent) and Daniel Parrella (2,735, 18.7 percent) trailed.

As the top vote-getter, Davis will take the mayor’s chair in 2016.

Measure O, which asked Davis voters to approve a half-percent increase in the sales tax, from 8 to 8.5 percent, was approved by 8,316 voters (58.9 percent) compared to 5,810 no votes (41.1 percent). The measure needed only a simple majority for passage.

Measure P, which tosses out the city’s existing water rates and reverts back to rates in place before May 2013, was approved by a slim margin. A total of 7,058 voters (51 percent) said yes, compared to 6,771 who said no (49 percent).

In the close race for Yolo County superintendent of schools, Jesse Ortiz captured 14,318 votes (51.5 percent) to Sam Neustadt’s 13,474 (48.5 percent).

Final voter turnout was 39.1 percent for Davis, 32.9 percent for Yolo County. Statewide, only about 23.4 percent of voters cast a ballot.
