The Fountain Valley City Council appears to be getting two new members and keeping one familiar face.
Incumbent Michael Vo was the leader in election returns early Wednesday, with Patrick Harper and Kim Constantine in second and third places in the race for three available seats as of midnight, with all precincts reporting.
Fountain Valley’s council has a total of five seats. Members are elected by voters citywide.
Vo, the current mayor and the only incumbent in the running this year, had 16.1% of the vote among the eight candidates. Placing in the top three would earn his third term. Harper, a city planning commissioner, had 15.9%, and Constantine, a businesswoman and local activist, had 14.9%.
Other candidates in this year’s race were high-technology account manager Glenn Grandis, entrepreneur Nick Lecong, business owner and real estate broker Tom Nguyen, Fountain Bowl co-owner Dave Osborn and former planning commissioner Patrick Tucker.
