• It’s likely Kampe, Cuneo, Fischer, Peake

    By 10:00 p.m. on this off-year election night, the makeup of Pacific Grove’s city council for the next two years is fairly certain. An all-business mayor who provided positive leadership, Bill Kampe’s 77 percent of the vote appears to be insurmountable by single-issue candidate John Moore.
    Three seats on the city council were open with Al Cohen being termed out, and six men threw their hats in the ring.
    Voters of Pacific Grove returned the two incumbents, Ken Cuneo and Rudy Fischer to their respective seats on the dais. Both ran on their records and the achievements of the current city council. Cuneo topped the votes at 1,227 by 10:00 p.m., while Fischer drew 1,182.
    It was the third seat that was up for grabs, and newcomer Bill Peake appears to have come out on top of the remaining candidates with 1,195 votes. Behind him were former postmaster Shannon Cardwell at 850 votes, newcomer Brian Brooks at 683, and repeat candidate Robert Pacelli at 540.

    Measure A, the school bond measure, was hovering at 57.05% positive with 80% of the vots counted.
