I hope Nancy does not imposed a conservative church agenda as a representative of Tracy. The younger lot in Tracy are ready for a modern leadership in the council.

debdaves,

I think you are off on a tangent again grasping at straws.

The voters have such issues at hand such as jobs and safety.

In fact, the majority of the people impacted by the economy are the young people you mentioned.

Some of them may not even have a clue of what are the issues, let alone the candidates. But they may want to grow in that understanding if they expect any change.

Otherwise they will become disallusioned and give up on voting when they get old.

Congrats to Nancy and Mike. Nancy you ran an amazing campaign!! These numbers say a whole lot about the evolution of our community. So if these are the final results then that leaves the council with an open seat, Elliott will be moving up to County Supervisor and leaving his post as a councilmen. According to the results posted through the registrars office Ray Morelos came in with the 3rd most votes. Logic would say he earned the 3rd open seat based on the communities support. Let’s pay attention to how that appointment plays out, who gets to decide this one?

NANCY D. YOUNG 7278 26.99%

MICHAEL MACIEL 6911 25.63%

RAY MORELOS 4701 17.43%

CHARLES MANNE 4282 15.88%

ROGER J. BIRDSALL 3679 13.64%

Write-in Votes 118 0.44%

City Council decides

What do we do now? In 2006 we had the similar situation that we have now. Brent Ives ran for mayor as a sitting city council member and won, which left a council seat open. Bob Elliott ran for supervisor and won, this now leaves a council seat open. The result of Ives win was a convoluted decision by the the then city council members to decide to appoint someone. This was not based on the person who ran and came in third, but by someone on the council putting out a nomination of someone and another member of the council seconding the motion vote. Mike Maciel was third in the vote count. Mr. Abercrombie was appointed without spending one penny of his own money. I still think this stinks. Now we are in the same situation with an open seat, and the council set the precedence.

I am now considering to ask to be appointed to the the vacant seat. I think that a they have put in place something that anyone with common sense could see coming. I believe this this attitude is not conducive with the will of the people. WMN

If you want to know who the council is going to appoint as Elliot's Replacement look at the second picture in this article linked below. There is a campaign sign behind Mayor Ives and the old Japanese fellow. Say no more.

Hint he came in last in the election.
