Tuesday will mark the 100th day in office for Mayor Scott Wehrli and some people are still griping about the results of the election. Does anybody remember the name of the third mayoral candidate in addition to Scott Wehrli and Benny White?
Scott Wehrli received 15,915 votes (53.07%), Benny White gathered 13,436 votes for 44.8%, and Tiffany Stephens garnered 638 votes for 2.13%. Some folks are irritated that Stephens entered the race, thinking it skewed the results for Wehrli. It didn’t. Even if White would have received Stephens 638 votes, he would have totaled 14,074 votes for 46.93 of the total vote, giving Wehrli a 6% victory.
No matter how she got the votes, or who supported her candidacy, the end result would have been the same. It’s time to move on and show support for Mayor Scott Wehrli until if or when his leadership tells us otherwise.
