Final results: Hicks edges out Showalter in Mountain View Council race

By the Daily Post staff

In the seesaw battle for the third seat on the Mountain View City Council, newcomer Alison Hicks has defeated incumbent Pat Showalter by 97 votes.

Santa Clara County on Wednesday (Dec. 5) completed counting the votes yesterday from the election a month ago.

In the council race, there wasn’t much doubt since Election Night that the first and second place finishers would be Ellen Kamei and Lucas Ramirez.

But as the votes were counted, the candidate in the No. 3 position changed a couple of times.

Here are the final results:

Mountain View City Council
ELLEN KAMEI 11,916 19.00%
LUCAS RAMIREZ 11,397 18.17%
ALISON HICKS 11,129 17.74%
PAT SHOWALTER* 11,032 17.59%
LENNY SIEGEL* 9,929 15.83%
