The tumultuous campaign season stirred up surprises amongst voters. The most coveted office in city government leaves San Marcos with unanswered questions on Election Day. For now, incumbent Mayor Susan Narvaiz is declared the victor attaining 50.08 percent of the vote compared to challengers, Dave Newman obtaining 30.03 percent and Dan McCarthy with 19.89 percent. The Mayoral office will have an official winner after 65 provisional votes are revised for legitimacy, and a five-day wait for “out of the country votes.” The provisional votes have not been counted in the total tally.

Incumbent Narvaiz, who supported a 6 million dollar "bailout" of local Target and J.C. Penny stores barely avoided a runoff. Just thought I'd update ya'll since most poeple outside of SM haven't been watching our race very closely.

You'd think 6 million might be enough to open a locally owned store.
