By Wednesday morning, according to the semi-official election night final report, Trisha Wilkins and Carol Patton had become the new council members with 35.27 and 33.70 of the vote, respectively. George Lowry, the third candidate, had 30.67 percent of the vote with 66 percent of the votes counted.
