Gainesville City Commission Election Results
Results are in for the Gainesville City Commission seats on Tuesday's ballot:
Incumbent Helen Warren beat Jenn Powell for the At Large Seat 2, newcomer Harvey Ward Jr. won District 2 over Perry Clawson and Sheryl Eddie, and challenger David Arreola beat incumbent Craig Carter in District 3.
New Supervisor of Elections Kim Barton says she's happy with the outcome of the day.
Barton explains, "Today has been a very exciting day for me, being it my first elections. Was really looking forward to a higher turnout in the precinct. Unfortunately we didn't make it there. The total turnout was 11.88, but we did have a great increase in vote by mail as well as in early voting. So those increased, so we're going to keep trying to get those numbers up."
