The Nevada Independent reported Regent Cedric Crear beat out a crowded field to win a low-turnout special election to replace former Councilman Ricki Barlow on the Las Vegas City Council.
Crear received 627 votes or slightly more than 27 percent, outdistancing 10 challengers, including second-place finisher Shondra Summers-Armstrong, who finished with 17 percent.
Crear ran against a former state assemblyman, a real estate agent, a general contractor and a youth basketball coach. He’ll serve the remaining portion of Barlow’s term before going up for re-election in 2019.
