Long time ANC commissioner Ed Solomon and first term commissioner Jim Wilcox appear to have lost their bids to reelection. As of last night, Kishan Putta led Solomon with 68% of the vote. And Gwendolyn Lohse led Wilcox with 66% of the vote.
Assuming these results hold, this will spell the end of a long and noteworthy term for Solomon, who served since 2005. Wilcox, who won the open seat two years ago, faced a strong challenge from Lohse, who was backed by many who disagreed with Wilcox’s combative approach on the commission.
Joe Gibbons, Rick Murphy, Lisa Palmer and Anna Landre won their seats uncontested. Matias Burdman probably won ANC2E08 based on a write in campaign, but that will need to be confirmed.
