Laguna Beach voters returned three incumbents to the City Council in an election year that reverberated nationally with the public's disenchantment with the status quo.
With 26 of Laguna's 26 precincts reported, Kelly Boyd, Elizabeth Pearson and Toni Iseman were reelected for four more years. Results will not be official until the Orange County Registrar of Voters certifies the election, no later than 28 days after the election, with no changes expected.
"My feeling is that people just wanted to keep things the way they were," said Boyd, the top vote-getter with 5,283 votes, or 30.5% of the uncertified count.
Pearson came in second with 4,888 votes, 28.2%.
"The economy was a key factor in the election and I feel good about what the council has done to help our businesses," Pearson said. "And there were no partisan attacks by local political action committees. I think people appreciated that the election was not contentious."
