Menchaca Edges Out Delatorre in San Gabriel

In her second try for the San Gabriel City Council Denise Menchaca appears to have been elected, along with incumbents Jason Pu and Chin Ho Liao, according to near final election results posted by the L.A. County Registrar-Recorder this week.

The election results will not be official until certified by the Board of Supervisors and the City Council. The Election occurred on March 7.

Menchaca was ahead of Mario Delatorre by eight votes at the last count. Delatorre can request a recount if he makes a deposit more than $5,000.
