Some winners are known, while other races are still too close to call. In Tuolumne County, Ryan Campbell defeated David Titchenal by a wide margin of 63-percent to 36-percent to retain his Tuolumne County Supervisor District Two seat. Cathy Parker has a comfortable lead over challenger Zack Abernathy in the Superintendent of Schools race, 54-percent to 45-percent, but there are still many ballots to count.
In the Sonora City Council race, the top two vote-getters are Andy Merrill and Kurt Bryant. However, Bryant has only a five-vote lead over third-place Suzanne Cruz, so the race is too close to call. The top two vote-getters will win the seats.
In the Calaveras District Three Supervisor race, Martin Huberty has 57-percent to Lisa Muetterties 42-percent. In the Treasurer-Tax Collector race, Lehua Mossa will be the winner, as she has 71-percent to Jennifer Barr’s 28-percent.
