2 of 7 precincts reporting and mail-in ballots counted, Vincent Yu and Tom Chavez were
leading early in the race for two Temple City City Council seats.
Yu had received 785 votes; Chavez, 641; former Councilman Chuck Souder, 534; Councilman Ken Gillanders, 435; Mayor Cathe Wilson, 380; and redevelopment consultant Silenus Ong, 203.
Wilson and Gillanders
are running for re-election, but bribery allegations against Wilson and
frustration over the city’s economic development problems have provided an opening in the race for the four challengers.
Incumbent Susan Tripp and Gabe Garcia, a former Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District Board of Education member, easily won in Tuesday’s City Council election. Measure A that would raise the city’s transient occupancy tax from 7 percento to 10 percent over the next four years also won. Here are the results:
Susan Tripp 2,204 41.4 percent
Gabe Garcia 1,704 32 percent
