In District 1, Steph Walton conceded by posting a statement on Facebook. Dan Kalb is the winner of that race. Rebecca Kaplan’s campaign sent an email also declaring victory in the at-large City Council race and her closest challenger, Derreck Johnson, sent an email to his supporters conceding. In D7, Treva Reid has maintained a big lead since election night and most votes are now counted. Barbara Parker defeated Eli Ferran in the city attorney race. In District 5, Noel Gallo maintains a slim majority preventing a ranked choice runoff.
