Kamei, Ramirez and Hicks beat incumbents after monthlong wait for final results
In a repudiation of the current city council’s direction, Mountain View residents last week voted out incumbent Mayor Lenny Siegel and fellow Councilwoman Pat Showalter, while electing three newcomers to the council.
As of Monday, Ellen Kamei, Lucas Ramirez and Alison Hicks were the top vote-getters, respectively, for the three open spots on the seven-seat council, with Showalter and Siegel finishing behind them.
With all precincts reporting, the candidates who won council seats were challengers Ellen Kamei, who led everyone with 19.20 percent of the vote, followed by Alison Hicks with 17.7 percent and Lucas Ramirez with 17.67 percent. Pat Showalter came in fourth with 17.23 percent, followed by Siegel with 15.59 percent and former Councilman John Inks with 12.54 percent.
