La Verne residents chose newcomer Don Kendrick and incumbent Dan Harden to fill two city council seats in unofficial results of Tuesday’s election.
Mayor Jon Blickenstaff, running for re-election unopposed, will also serve for another four years.
In the council election, Roger Hanawalt followed the two leaders closely while Patrick Gatti trailed.
Kendrick, a fourth-generation La Verne resident, has served the community for years as a member of the planning commission and the Youth and Family Action Committee. Harden, a businessman, has been a council member since 1992
“I think both winners have a very positive involvement in the city,” Blickenstaff said in a phone interview today.
There was little conflict among the council candidates; both winners seemed to be concerned with the same issues, with public safety topping their lists.
“It was a very clean campaign,” Blickenstaff said.
Winners of Tuesday’s election will be sworn in March 21 at La Verne City Hall.
