Fort Collins City Council Election Results in Little Change

Four seats were available in the April 2 municipal election. The business-minded Council contingent now includes Mayor Karen Weitkunat, who easily won a second term with 70 percent of the votes, Wade Troxell and newcomer Gino Campana. The environment/social/liberal faction lost Kelly Ohlson and Ben Manvel to term limits. However, Bob Overbeck’s victory over Butch Stockover and Ross Cunniff’s easy victory in District 5 means that Lisa Poppaw has new allies. It will take a while to see how the members of this new Council work together. But it is likely that Gerry Horak, who was elected Mayor pro tem by the Council, will continue his role as the tiebreaker.
