Final results for the three open seats on the Roseville City Council have been tallied and posted by the Placer County Elections Office.

Those updated figures released Nov. 21 show incumbent Carol Garcia earning 20.3 percent of the total 111,346 votes cast, which means she will become vice mayor once sworn in and will transition to mayor in two years. Current Mayor Pauline Roccucci garnered 19.6 percent of the vote and Bonnie Gore got 18.9 percent. Councilman John Allard is being termed out of office.

In the Roseville Joint Union High School district, final results released by Placer County and by Sacramento County on Nov. 30 show narrow margins separating the four candidates vying for three seats. A total of 116,753 votes were cast.

Incumbent Jan Pinney ended up with the most votes at 25.5 percent. Candidate Rene Aguilera — who currently serves on the Roseville City School District board of trustees — earned 25.18 percent, which equates to 36 more votes than incumbent Paige Stauss, who garnered 25.15 percent. Incumbent Garry Genzlinger has been ousted, finishing with 23.7 percent of the vote.

Dry Creek Joint Elementary School District also includes schools in both Placer and Sacramento counties. Based on final results, incumbent Scott Otsuka earned 40.2 percent of the vote and incumbent Jeff Randall got 32.4 percent. This leaves challenger Stephanie Dement without a seat, as she earned 27 percent of the vote.

Final Placer County results show Eureka Union School District school board incumbent Ryan Jones ending up with 37 percent of the vote and Renee Nash getting 32 percent, both earning a spot on the board. Incumbent Kristie Greiss finished with 31 percent of the vote and will lose her position on the board.

The Roseville City School District will welcome Jeff Willoughby to its school board, who will join incumbent Gary Miller. Two seats were open and only two candidates filed papers to run, so they both secured a seat. Due to Aguilera’s departure, the board will appoint another trustee.
