Mayor Gary Resnick won a comfortable re-election bid against challenger Boyd Corbin with 72 percent of the votes Tuesday night, winning a fifth term as the Island City’s leading elected official.
Ruthanne Stadnik, a resident and Resnick supporter, said the city’s “really grown and prospered under Gary’s guidance” and that she was glad the road reduction of Wilton Drive would keep moving forward. “Property values have gone up. He really has made a difference.”
But Resnick’s fellow incumbents, Commissioner Tom Green and Commissioner Julie Carson, had much closer races.
Green, who got 32 percent of the vote, was the leader in the commission race. Carson came in second with 28 percent.
Challengers Paul Rolli and Celeste Ellich got 27 and 11 percent respectively. Carson and Rolli were only separated by 116 votes.
