Torres has narrow lead over Perales

PASCO — Nikki Torres holds a narrow lead over Leo A. Perales in the only contested City Council race in the Nov. 2 election.

As of the end of counting Tuesday night, Torres had received 1,029 votes, or 51.4%. Meanwhile, Perales had 968 votes, or 48.34%, in their race for the District No. 3, Position No. 3 seat.

Torres has a 61-vote lead with potentially thousands of ballots yet to be tallied.

Late-arriving ballots will continued to be counted over the next several days, meaning the election was too close to call Tuesday night.

In other Pasco City Council races, Blanche Barajas received a paltry 245 votes in her uncontested race for the District No. 1, Position No. 1 seat.

Meanwhile, Pete Serrano, also unopposed, had received 960 votes in his re-election to the District No. 4, Position No. 4 seat.

And Craig Maloney had 185 votes in his uncontested run for the District No. 6, Position No. 6 seat.
