Holden leads Ardila in District 30 City Council race


Voters in City Council District 30 hit the polls on Primary Day to pick between two Democratic candidates, and early results have the incumbent leading.

Councilman Robert Holden has about 53 percent of the vote (4,409 votes) with Juan Ardila trailing behind at 46 percent (3,868 votes), as of Thursday morning, according to unofficial results from the city’s Board of Elections. 

The official results will not be in until the anticipated date of July 12, after all absentee ballots are counted. Since there are only two candidates in the race, if Holden continues to hold more than 50 percent of the vote, he will win the seat outright and there will not be a ranked-choice voting recount.
