Only 3282, or 9.2%, of Gaithersburg voters, voted. Mayor Jud Ashman was reelected without opposition and 2895 votes.
Council Results (2 seats)
Laurie-Anne Sayles, 1953 (59.5%)
Michael Sesma (i), 1730 (52.7%)
Jim McNulty, 1259 (38.3%)
Yvette Monroe (i), 1253 (38.2%)
For the two seats on the city council, newcomer Laurie-Anne Sayles ran away with the race with close to 60% of the vote. Incumbent Michael Sesma also won easily, though with just over majority support. Incumbent Yvette Monroe came in fourth place and lost her seat.
Ashman endorsed Sesma and Monroe. Sayles complained that he violated ethics laws in the way he did it. My guess is council meetings just got a bit more interesting. Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all for running.
