Photos and short story from the Mardi Wormhoudt campaign office late Tuesday night after her victory in the 3rd District Supervisor race.
Spirits were flying high tonight at Mardi Wormhoudt’s campaign office as she celebrated her 526 vote victory over Mark Primack in one of the closest local races in this year’s elections. At one point in the evening, the two candidates for the 3rd District County Board of Supervisor's seat were a mere 65 votes apart.

Wormhoudt and her supporters, including nine former Santa Cruz Mayors present at her victory party, were elated at the results.

“If I’d lost, I would have said to you, ‘Hey, we’ll just tell Mr. Primack we’re still here. We’re not going anywhere.’”

“Tell him anyway!” Someone shouted.

“I think we just told him!” Mardi responded.

After the many thanks that always follow a hard won victory, she ended with a toast to her next term:

“Here’s to another four years in which we see to it that working people are respected, that people in need have the care they deserve in this county, that our environment is honored and protected and that we live gently with each other and on the earth.”

By late Tuesday night, and with all 46 precincts reporting, Mardi’s lead was 51.5 percent to Primack’s 48.2 percent. However, Primack wasn’t giving up. For him the “verdict [was] still out” until all of the absentee ballots are counted in what looks like a called race for Wormhoudt.
