Assistant Mayor Matt Hull also received 43 votes. Challengers Paul Tuennerman and Robert Wilkins each received one vote.

Incumbent Councilman Barry Levey was the top vote-getter for the three open council seats with 43 votes.

Richard Walton received 37 votes and Jackie Stranathan received 25 votes to win seats on the council.

They defeated David Gudeman, who received 12 votes; David Dougall with two votes; and Bobby Slick, E. Swiger, former councilwoman Yvonne Hope and Donald Weigel, who received one vote each.

Husband and wife council members Judy and James Kerns pulled out of the race in the last few weeks because of family health problems, Simmons said.
