City Council candidate Michael Davitt edged out local businessman Charlie Kamar for the third of three open City Council seats on Friday during a final count of provisional and vote-by-mail ballots cast on Election Day.
Mayor Donald Voss and Councilwoman Laura Olhasso — the race’s top two finishers — will also retain their seats.
Going into Friday’s count of the 346 leftover ballots, Davitt led Kamar by 132 votes — 1,926 to 1,794, respectively.
They finished the race today 118 votes apart: Davitt with 2,095 and Kamar at 1,977.
Though clearly disappointed with the result, Kamar said he was pleased with this campaign.
“I’m happy that I won a lot of people’s hearts in La Cañada. I’m proud of that. Thank you to all of the people who supported me and voted for me,” Kamar said.
Voss, who also watched the leftover ballot count at City Hall, urged Kamar to remain involved in civic affairs.
