Lightner, Ellis to face off in November
SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Businessman Ray Ellis and incumbent Councilwoman Sherri Lightner are headed
for a runoff in District 1.
With 100 percent of the precincts counted, Ellis was the top vote-getter in District
1, which covers La Jolla and Carmel Valley, followed closely by
Lightner, but neither earned the 50 percent of the vote needed
to claim the seat outright.
Ellis told City News Service he was “honored” by the support of San
Diegans in his district.
Incumbent Councilman Todd Gloria was returned to office without
challenge in District 3, made up of downtown, Hillcrest and North Park.
Mark Kersey will succeed Councilman Carl DeMaio in District 5, which
covers Mira Mesa, Scripps Ranch and Rancho Bernardo. He was unopposed. DeMaio
vacated the seat to run for mayor.
