SUISUN CITY — Lori Wilson’s election night went a lot better Tuesday than two years ago.

As of press time, Wilson led both incumbents in the race for two City Council seats in Suisun City.

Wilson had secured 38.7 percent of the vote, while Mike Segala had 32.6 percent and Sam Derting had 28 percent.

For Wilson, it was a redemption after coming in third two years ago. She and friends celebrated in Marina Center as the votes trickled in.

“This is what I was working for. We were cautiously optimistic because of the response we got at all the doors,” she said. “I’m excited to be a part of this.”

Wilson ran on the campaign of a new face on the council and being someone who knows the everyday life of families in Suisun City. Working with a campaign headquarters out of her garage, Wilson said it was the strategy and getting out to talk to people that put her over the top.

Segala said he hopes he’s not alone in thinking for himself when debating issues on what has become a contentious council. He said he hoped the fact that Wilson was backed by Councilwoman Jane Day wouldn’t make her follow Day’s lead when voting.

“I will work just as hard. I will find more projects,” Segala said. “I want to see how (Wilson) makes decisions on her own. I want to be able to see that energy she has shown.”

In other Suisun elections, incumbent City Clerk Linda Hobson retained her spot with 80.3 percent of the vote. Her challenger, Charles Kingeter, took 19.4 percent of the vote.

Michael McMurry was leading Jan Davenport in the race for treasurer with 52.2 percent of the vote.

    Kingeter did better than I thought he would.

    Lori is a Democrat's democrat and she will result in gridlock. But Lori is the future of Suisun---increasingly minority demographics, increasingly insolvent, increasingly an undesirable place to live, buy a home, start a business or raise a family. Lori's wants "redistribution" and all matters of justice, merit and public acomodation based solely on race. I like Lori and I voted for her to bust up the gang of 5 and their poor service (Churchill sometimes voted for labor to punish his own party).
