Election results from the Tuesday, Nov. 4 election show a pair of Riverbank incumbent city council members likely headed back to their seats.
While the Stanislaus County Registrar of Voters office has 28 days to certify the vote and results are declared ‘unofficial’ until the certification, the returns from Tuesday showed incumbent Cal Campbell tallying 1,180 votes in his reelection bid, followed by Leanne Jones Cruz, with 1,082 votes. It was a three-way race for two available spots on the council, with challenger Larry King polling 786 votes. If those totals hold, both incumbents will be back on the council.
Local representatives fared well in the county as well, with Congressman Jeff Denham polling 57 percent of the Stanislaus County vote to 43 percent for Michael Eggman; Assembly member Kristin Olsen garnered 67 percent of the Stanislaus County vote totals over challenger Harinder Grewal, with 33 percent.
