PHOENIX — Incumbent Councilman Daniel Valenzuela dominated in the District 5 race for re-election, as of 11:00 p.m.
Valenzuela was the only City Council member facing re-election that went up against a challenger. Valenzuela appeared to have 73.75 percent of the votes while Felix Garcia had 26.25 percent.
“Tonight’s landslide victory stands as a testament to the support of so many residents, business owners and neighborhood leaders. Thank you,” said Valenzuela in a statement. “We faced a slew of disgusting personal attacks and one lie after another targeting my family and my loved ones – and yet our supporters never wavered. I will continue to work hard every day to earn your support and to serve the city of Phoenix.”
Thelda Williams was re-elected in District 1 with Bill Gates staying at his post in District 3 and Michael Nowakowski getting a second term in District 7.
