The final votes for Auburn City Council are in. Thursday the Placer County Office of Elections released its final results for the Nov. 2 general election. Councilman Mike Holmes, Mayor Bridget Powers and Councilman Kevin Hanley beat out Planning Commissioner Bob Snyder, Taxpayer Advocate Dan Sokol and City Clerk Joe Labrie for three available Auburn City Council seats. Holmes received 23.56 percent of the vote with 3,231 votes, Powers received 21.81 percent of the vote with 2,991 votes and Hanley received 21.01 percent of the vote with 2,881 votes. Traditionally Auburn’s mayor is chosen because he or she received the most votes in the election. Councilman Dr. Bill Kirby is next in line for mayor. He is scheduled to be followed by Councilman Keith Nesbitt, Holmes and Powers. ~Bridget Jones
