Bullhead City and City Clerk Sue Stein issued the following press release, clarifying the outcomes of Tuesday’s balloting:
The unofficial results of the August 30, 2016 primary election indicate that five out of seven candidates running for City Council seats have received sufficient votes to be elected. There were two races – four seats of four-year terms and one seat to fill a two-year unexpired term left by the late Mickey McClure.
The four candidates that received the highest number of votes for the four-year terms were Mark R. Clark, Kathy Bruck, Sheila Shutts and Tami Ring and are therefore determined to be elected. Annette Wegmann ran unopposed to fill the two-year term and has been determined to be elected. Assumption of duties by those elected will take place at the November 15, 2016 City Council meeting. No run-off at the general election will be necessary.
Final vote counts are subject to the official results provided by the Mohave County Elections Department and the election canvass approved by the Bullhead City Council.
The Bullhead City General Plan Update was also approved by the voters. The adopted Plan will be effective for the next ten years.
Mark Clark – 2,573 General Plan – 2,640 yes / 1,306 no
Kathy Bruck – 2,385
Sheila Shutts – 2,020
Tami Ring – 1,873
Annette Wegmann – 3,265
