Congratulations to Jim Tolbert, District 2 New Rep

Well, everyone was wrong, District 2 did not end up in a run-off.  Instead, Jim Tolbert took the District 2 seat by 59.93%.  A total of 1,889 people (or approximately 3% of the registered voters in that district) voted in the special election. This win means that Tolbert will finish out Larry Romero’s term and will be in office until May 2017. According to KVIA, the certified results should be available on Monday, May 16th  and Tolbert could be sworn in to take office within two weeks following those results.

Congratulations, City Representative Elect Tolbert!  Congratulations District 2 on your new representative!  Although, we have to say, 3% is a pretty poor showing.
