Chula Vista mayor's race, council seat 1 undecided

There are three seats up for grabs in the city of Chula Vista and only one race seems to be decided.

During the second batch of unofficial results released at 9:30 p.m. in the June 3 primary election, Mary Salas is in the lead for the Chula Vista mayor's seat with 5,442 votes (44.52 percent) compared to Jerry Rindon's 4,610 votes (37.72 percent). City Councilmember Pamela Bensoussan is in third with 2,171 votes.

Chula Vista’s current Mayor Cheryl Cox is in the last year of her second term.

In Chula Vista’s City Council first seat race, John McCann has 39.15 percent (4,704) of the vote, compared to Steve Padilla's 31.06 percent (3,732 votes). Scott Vinson is a distant third with 13.88 percent of the votes.

Patricia Aguilar has 50.37 percent of the votes (5,925 votes) for her own seat on the City Council. Dan Smith is second with 16.98 percent of the votes.

If a candidate does not receive at least 50 percent plus one of the votes then the top two candidates will go to a runoff in November.
