Navarro Declares Victory in MoCo Special Election
After winning yesterday's special election in Montgomery County for an open seat on the council, Democrat Nancy Navarro said in a written statement that she was prepared to reach "out to all members of the community" and to provide "the steady, responsive representation that the late Councilmember Marilyn Praisner was so well-known for."
Navarro defeated Republican Robin Ficker, the well-known low-tax advocate, by 63 percent to 33 percent with all precincts reporting in the District 4 contest. Green Party candidate George Gluck received 4 percent of the vote.
Board of Elections officials will start counting at least 1,380 absentee ballots this week, but a spokeswoman said the review was unlikely to affect the outcome.
