After election season controversy, longtime Folsom City Council member at risk of losing seat after six terms

Although final tallies await, it appears a Folsom City Councilmember and current Mayor's long-tenured service could end.

Kerri Howell, the current appointed Mayor and council member is trailing her opponent Anna Rohrbough by 273 votes. Howell has 2,550 votes for 47.46 percent to Rohrbough's 2,823 votes for 52.54 percent for the District 5 seat. 

The Sacramento County Voter Registration and Elections will update vote tallies tomorrow afternoon. As of last week, there were 89,000 unprocessed ballots countywide.

While county voter turnout is about 46 percent, for Folsom's District 5, turnout is 66 percent.

Howell, who was first elected to the Folsom City Council in 1998, faced controversy during the election after it was discovered another city council member helped gather signatures for her campaign petition, violating state law. After the City of Folsom filed a complaint, a Sacramento County Superior Court judge ruled Howell's name should remain on the ballot.

24 years of service is greatly appreciated however the chair should not be a permanent place to sit. It is the reason for term limits.
