Voters cast ballots for Fresno County supervisor, Clovis City Council


Voters went to the polls Tuesday for two elections.

Ballots were cast in a special election for the Fresno County Board of Supervisors District 2 seat. It’s the seat vacated by Andreas Borgeas  who went to the State Senate. 

Election night results show Steve Brandau at 57.51 percent, Nasreen Johnson at 31.77 percent and Steve Hosey taking 10.65 of the votes. 

It was not a very close race. Brandau took a big lead early. He needed more than 50 percent of the votes to win outright. 

Brandau is a business owner and city councilor. Many expected him to win, and both Chief Jerry Dyer and Sheriff Margaret Mims endorsed him. 

Hosey is a former baseball player turned developer and Johnson is the marketing director of a non-profit. 

In the City of Clovis three seats were up for grabs on the Clovis City Council, and four candidates were vying for those positions. The top three contenders Tuesday night were Bob Whalen with around 32 percent, Drew Bessinger at about 30 percent, and Jose Flores with 29 percent.

According to the county, election nights results should not be considered official. Any mail in ballots postmarked Tuesday and received before 5 p.m. on Friday will also need to be counted.
