In Ward 1, Jenny Brekhus appeared headed to victory with 1,318 votes. The second candidate was up in the air, with Bernie Carter and Charles “Chuck” Reno neck in neck with 933 and 900 votes respectively.
In Ward 3, Oscar Delgado had a big lead with 908 votes, while Cliff Young was taking second with 556 votes.
In Ward 5, challenger Neoma Jordan was besting County Commissioner Kitty Jung by a tally of 2,151 to 1,879. Both were well ahead of the third candidate, Kirby Lampley.
For the at-large seat, Hillary Schieve led a field of eight candidates with 4,978 votes. David Ward had 3,958 and two others — Washoe County School District Trustee Scott Kelley and Kathleen Taylor — had more than 3,000 votes.
In a three-person race for Washoe County commission District 4, Vaughn Hartung received more than 50 percent of the vote so his name will be the only one on the ballot in November, making him the outright winner of the race. He defeated two other Republicans, Jesse Gutierrez and Jerry Kosak. District 4 represents Sparks and Spanish Springs.
No candidates for Sparks offices have any challengers this year, so their names did not appear on Tuesday’s ballot.
