In District Two, the candidates will be Autumn Andahl (34%) and Trevor Wittke (32%).

In District Four, Amanda Folendorf ran unopposed and received 100% of the vote.

Measure A, a one-cent sales tax measure for fire services, passed with 55% in favor and 44% opposed. A similar measure narrowly failed two years ago.

Measure B, a renewal of the Abandoned Vehicle Abatement Program and Fee also passed with 62% in favor and 38% opposed.
