Huber, Brown buoyed

Full vote tallies for Chico City Council favor progressives

A 5-2 progressive majority on the Chico City Council appears to be the outcome of the Nov. 6 general election, with Scott Huber (pictured) solidly in third following the full tally of ballots.

Election-night results put Huber ahead of Andrew Coolidge, the lone incumbent, by 141 votes. In unofficial totals released last Tuesday (Nov. 13), that margin grew to 588, and Huber’s fellow progressive Alex Brown vaulted conservative Kasey Reynolds to become the leading vote-getter (by 159 votes).

The Butte County Elections Office said it would release official final results at 5 p.m. Wednesday (Nov. 21).
