District 5 runoff will be Jan. 31
CITY OF SEAL BEACH
There will be a runoff election to fill the District 5 seat representing about half of Leisure World on Jan. 31. Council member Sandra Massa-Lavitt is termed out.
Nathan Steele, a business owner, got the most votes, 1,291 votes or 44.89%, on Election Day Nov. 8. He was followed by Mariann Klinger, a planning commissioner, who got 636 votes or 22.11%.
Neither candidate received 50% plus 1 of the votes, so they will contend for the seat in a runoff.
District 5 covers the portion of LW west of St. Andrews Drive. The remainder of LW comprises District 2.
Seal Beach city staff anticipates certifying the election at the Dec. 12 City Council meeting, provided the official results are received from Orange County Registrar’s Office.
