With all precincts reporting, all three Elk Grove City Council Members on the ballot won their respective races.

In the District 3 race, two-term incumbent Steve Detrick defeated challenger Maureen Craft. Detrick received 59-percent or 9,043 votes to Craft's 3,561 votes, or 23-percent.

Also receiving votes was Vincent Neuburger. Even though he dropped out of the race and threw his support to Craft, he garnered 2,761 votes for 17-percent. 

In the race for District 1, Darren Suen earned 10,772 votes for 73-percent over challenger John Phair. Suen, who was appointed to the seat, won a four-year term on the City Council.

In the race for Mayor, Elk Grove City Councilman Steve Ly won 8,168 votes or 48-percent in a field with six other candidates. Ly will leave his seat on the City Council upon taking oath as Mayor which will create a vacancy on that the council will decide how to fill.

Because of their advantage of incumbency, all three Councilmen were able build commanding campaign war chests that their challenger were unable to match. Additionally, Ly, who also had an independent expenditure committee funded with $100,000, hired an aircraft to fly over Elk Grove this afternoon urging residents to "Vote Today Steve Ly For Mayor."
