City of Charlottesville Election Results: City Council, Clerk of Court, School Board

Posted: Updated:

The results are in for the Charlottesville City Council, Clerk of Court, and School Board races.

Two new faces and an incumbent will be on Charlottesville's City Council. Democrats Satyendra Huja, Kathy Galvin and Dede Smith swept the race. They thanked a crowd at the Democratic party Tuesday night at Vivace.  Huja and Galvin support the Meadow Creek Parkway and water plan. Smith says she is looking forward to a debate.

"We will obviously have a very lively fact based discussion about those issues and I think again it's what democracy is about," said Smith.

Galvin added, "I do agree with the Meadow Creek Parkway and I do agree with the standing water plan."

"First of all, see that we work as a group together for the whole group and try to deal with issues ahead of us," stated Huja.

Five people sit on city council. There does not appear to be support to overturn previous council actions. The councilors-elect take office January 1.

Llezelle Dugger came out on top in the contest for Charlottesville Clerk of Court receiving 75 percent of the vote. Dugger had more than three times as many votes as Pam Melampy, who ran against Dugger in the Democratic primary and lost..

Seven candidates faced-off for four seats on Charlottesville's School Board and Colette Blount, Amy Laufer, Jennifer McKeever and Willa Neale beat out the competition.
