The election for the Mayor of Morro Bay has been very close this year. At Election Day, only 57 votes separated the leader, former mayor Bill Yates from city council woman Betty Winholtz. With results so close at the polls- mail in ballots have to be tallied. Now- with only 70 ballots yet to be counted- Yates is ahead by 73 votes.
Our current Mayor, Janice Peters, has held the position since 2004. She choose not to run again after serving the city of Morro Bay for over 20 years, first as a planning commissioner, then as a councilwomen, then Mayor.
What does this mean for the future of Morro Bay? We will see…
