Turnout at 13 .4 percent; incumbents return.
This past week, the City Clerk’s Office coordinated to complete the process of counting the remaining provisional and vote by mail ballots remaining from the April 11, General Municipal Election in Monrovia.
The recent election so far saw 2,850 ballots cast (mail-in ballots outnumbered in-pricinct voting by more than double) and a dismal turnout of 13.4 percent of registered voters. The updated semi-official results from the election are as follows:
- For Mayor
Tom Adams – 2,301 votes
Mark Harris – 434 votes
- For City Council
Larry Spicer – 2,052 votes
Alexander Blackburn – 1,757 votes
Clifford DeCosta – 866 votes
- For City Clerk
Alice Atkins – 2,578 votes
- For City Treasurer
Steve Baker – 2,561 votes
These results are unofficial and updating until the City Council formally certifies the election results, which is scheduled to take place on May 2, at 7:30 p.m.
