Chan Wins Her Former Supervisor Seat and Other Local Election Results

With all precincts reporting, former Alameda County Supervisor and member of the California State Assembly Wilma Chan has been elected as the District 3 Alameda County Supervisor with 54.6% of the vote, avoiding a November run-off. Her closest competitor, former Alameda Mayor Beverly Johnson, received just 30.8% of the vote. Oakland businessman Harold Lowe and perennial candidate Lou Filipovich were a distant third and fourth.

State Senator Ellen Corbett and Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi were unopposed in the primaries and can now cruise to their re-elections in November. Similarly, U.S. Congressman Pete Stark cruised to an easy victory over San Leandro resident Justin Jelincic with 83.5% to 16% of the vote and all precincts reporting.

In the 18th Assembly District Democratic Central Committee race, former San Leandro Mayor Shelia Young received the most votes of the 13 candidates vying for the six seats. Young was followed by incumbents Linda Perry and Ryan "Rocky" Fernandez, newcomer Margarita Lacabe [Full disclosure: Margarita is my wife], and incumbents Robin Torello and Diana Prola.

San Leandro resident Don Grundmann lost out to Edward Noonan in the American Independent U.S. Senate primary. Grundmann unsuccessfully ran for San Leandro School Board and U.S. President in 2008, the U.S. Senate in 2004 and 2006, and U.S. Congress in 2000 and 2002.

Further south, Nadia Lockyer (38%) appears headed for a run-off with former California State Senator Liz Figueroa (25%) for the District 2 Alameda County Supervisor seat being vacated by Gail Steele. Union City Mayor Mark Green finished a strong third with 23.8% of the vote, just 263 votes shy of Figueroa. With late absentee ballots still to be counted, Green still has a chance at a run-off with Lockyer. Hayward Councilmember Kevin Dowling was a distant fourth with less than 13% of the vote.
