Jason Maughan won the third seat for City Council, beating out incumbent Marty Harrity in the March 7 election. Kevin Ruane and Mick Denham were reelected for another four year term.

Ruane received 1,697 votes (29.95 percent), Denham received 1,545 votes (27.27 percent) and Maughan received 1,271 votes (22.43 percent). Harrity received 1,153 votes (20.35 percent).

"I am very pleased and honored to be selected once again. I have enjoyed my time on there and look forward to the next four years," Denham said, adding that he is looking forward to working with a new team. "I believe our mission is the same."

The top priorities he said were water quality, being sure the financial health of the city continues, as well as continuing to be concerned about the redevelopment process, in particular the Center 4 Life building and helping BIG ARTS with their plans.

"I am looking forward to it and looking forward to the challenge. I look forward to welcoming Jason Maughan as a candidate and look forward to the new team," Denham said.
