Sitting Mayor Blake Inscore will retain his seat on the Crescent City Council after pulling in a wide lead with voters Tuesday night.
Final results as of 8:15 p.m. showed Inscore with a healthy lead of 42.59 percent of votes, followed by Isaiah Wright, with 34.10 percent and Tony Cervantez with 22.79 percent.
Shortly after the results came back, Inscore seemed unsurprised.
“Well, you never know with these things,” he said. “I just tried my best to get my message out and I’m thankful the voters spoke and are willing to give me the opportunity to keep doing the job.”
Wright was less casual, saying, “I’m excited. I can’t wait to serve the community.” Asked for his priorities once seated on the council, Wright deferred, saying he’s still reeling from the news.
