Bethany Smith was leading in the Fairfield-Suisun School District Trustee Area 1 race as of 12:30 a.m. Wednesday with 1,676 votes compared to 1,279 for Spencer Marks and 1,075 votes for Mike Wright.
Smith was optimistic about the results but remained guarded until the final count comes in later.
“I am feeling very good about where things are at,” Smith said, “but don’t want to count it done yet.”
Joan K. Gaut was clearly the winner for the Area 2 seat with 3,356 votes. Melvin L. Cockhren II had 1,037 votes.
