Election results: Darcy Paul cruising to victory, Chao looks to gain Council seat

Cupertino voters took to the polls on Tuesday and were asked to select three people out of a field of eight candidates to represent them on the City Council.

Preliminary election results from the Nov. 6 election show that incumbent Darcy Paul is easily on track to be reelected with 4,280 votes. This will be Paul’s second term on the City Council. Paul is currently serving as mayor.

Cupertino Union School District board member and Better Cupertino supporter Liang-Fang Chao is in second place and incumbent Councilmember Savita Vaidhyanathan is holding on to reelection in third place. Fremont Union High School District board member Hung Wei, Better Cupertino supporter Jon Willey and former Cupertino Mayor Orrin Mahoney are trailing Vaidhyanathan for that third and final spot.

Tara Sreekrishnan and Tim Gorsulowsky are in distant seventh and eighth place.

Winners will join Vice Mayor Rod Sinks and Councilman Steven Scharf on the Council. Barry Chang will term out next month after serving on the Council since 2009.

Also on Tuesday, it appears voters in the Fremont Union High School District approved Measure CC, a $275 million bond measure.

Results are as of Wednesday afternoon and won’t be official until later this month. The next round of unofficial results from the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters will be Thursday at 9 a.m., according to the website.
