STOCKTON - Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva got half the results he wanted from Tuesdays city council elections.
While incumbent Dyane Burgos Medina was defeated, fellow-incumbent Elbert Holman survived to serve another term. Silva had actively campaigned against the incumbents, claiming he'll have more success as mayor with new council members.
"At one time, I put up signs for Holman, but he's not the person I thought he was when I was young and naive," Silva said. "The bottom line, the voters had spoken and I have to live with that," Silva said.
Holman was equally unimpressed with having to keep working with the mayor.
"I'm confident we can get along, but we don't go to dinner together," Holman said. "Doing the business of the city we have to work together."
