It looks like it will be Paul Deasy versus Charlie Odegaard for the next mayor of Flagstaff. Deasy received the most votes in Tuesday’s mayoral primary. He picked up 4,173 votes, or 37-percent of the vote, while Odegaard received 3,659 or 32-percent of the votes as of Wednesday. Jamie Whelan is third as she has received 3,225 votes, or 29-percent. If this holds, Deasy and Odegaard will compete for Mayor in the November primary. There are still some provisional and early ballots left to be counted. In other results, both Flagstaff propositions passed with more than 60-percent of the vote. In the District Four Board of Supervisor’s race Representative Bob Thorpe beat Stan Pierce to advance to the general election against Judy Begay, who beat Bryan Bates by 370 votes. Congressman Tom O’Halleran advanced to the general election in the Congressional District One primary with a sound defeat of former Flagstaff councilwoman Eva Putzova. O’Halleran won by over ten-thousand votes. He will face Republican Tiffany Shedd, who beat Nolan Reidhead in the primary. In the state Senate race, Wendy Rogers beat incumbent Sylvia Allen, 59-to-41-percent. She will meet Democrat Felicia French in the general election. Voters will go back to the polls November 3rd.
