Simi Valley City Council incumbent Mike Judge comfortably kept his seat after a challenge from Sean Weisman for the five-member council, final results certified on Wednesday show.
Returns from voters in District 2 in the southeast part of the city show Judge, a retired police officer, finished with 5,767 votes, or nearly 57% of the total.
Weisman, a college student, had 4,410 votes.
Judge will go on to his fourth term. Council members serve for four years.
In District 4 in the southwest part of the city, Rocky Rhodes, a CEO, easily won with 7,023 votes, or nearly 54%.
He was followed by Nancy Mason, a retired principal, with 4,059 votes, Eric Lundstrom, a financial analyst with 1,657 votes and Scott Enright, a substitute teacher, with 292.
None previously held a council seat.
Another District 2 incumbent, Ruth Luevanos, is stepping down from the council after a single four-year term following an unsuccessful campaign to run for the 25th District Congressional seat.
Five mayoral candidates ran in a separate city-wide race to succeed retiring Mayor Keith Mashburn.
