Election Results for PB Supporters

The US election results are still rolling in, but here’s an initial rundown of the results for PB supporters. If you know of more that should be added to the list, let us know.

San Juan, Puerto Rico
Carmin Yulín Cruz won a tight race to become the next mayor of San Juan. She has promised to launch participatory budgeting in her first 100 hours in office!

New York
City Council Members Eric Ulrich and Dan Halloran, who are implementing PB with their Council Member funds this year, both lost their bids for higher office, but they will remain in their City Council seats.

San Francisco
San Francisco Supervisors (the equivalent of City Council Members) David Chiu and John Avalos won easy re-election.

Richmond, California
The Richmond Progressive Alliance appears to have not won a City Council majority, which would have given it control over both Council and the Mayor’s office. Candidates backed by Chevron Oil, one of the city’s largest employers, appear headed for victory instead.

Oakland, California
Richard Raya appears to have finished third in a tight race for City Council District 1.

Fayetteville, Arkansas
Matthew Petty won re-election to the Fayetteville City Council.
