(9:02 p.m.) – Initial Election Night results show incumbent Mayor Heidi Harmon leading challengers Keith Gurnee and Donald Hedrick with 57 percent of the vote.
Gurnee has 40 percent of the vote. Hedrick has 2.5 percent.
Seven people were running for two seats on the city council — incumbent Carlyn Christianson, James Lopes, Abe Lincoln, Sarah Flickinger, Bob Voglin, Jeffery Specht, and Erica Stewart. Early results show Christianson (27 percent), Stewart (20 percent), and Lopes (20 percent) leading the pack.
Measure F, a cannabis business tax, was poised for passage with “yes” votes at 80 percent.
The future of cannabis-related business operations in the City of San Luis Obispo is contingent on the passage of Measure F. If it were to fail, no cannabis land use or operator permits would be issued. It requires a majority vote to pass.
