Mayor Steve Del Guercio and Councilmember Dave Spence were returned to their seats by La Canada Flintridge voters Tuesday, soundly beating challengers Robert Richter and Vance Haemmerle.

Clearly the majority of the voters sided with the incumbents, choosing to stick with the status quo. A total of 3,009 votes were cast, including absentee ballots.
