Long Beach Preliminary Election Results:

Garcia, Dunn to Face Off for Long Beach

Vice Mayor Robert Garcia is leading in his goal to be mayor of Long Beach.
Garcia, who garnered 9,670 votes in the April Long Beach primary election came out on top among 10 candidates for mayor with 25.39 percent of the vote.

“I love Long Beach and I feel like we’ve made really good progress over the last few years. I want to make sure that the city maintains financially responsible, but I also want to make sure that we grow in the right way,” said Garcia in a recent interview. “Long Beach needs a mayor that’s going to be positive, who’s going to be forward thinking [and] who’s going to have a progressive vision for the city.”

Garcia will be facing off Damon Dunn, who garnered 8,478 or 22.26 percent of the vote, at the June 3 election.

Assemblywoman Bonnie Lowenthal came in third, garnering 7,453 or 19.57 percent of the votes; District 5 Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske finished fourth with 5,889 votes or 15.46 percent of the votes; lawyer Doug Otto, tallied 5,186 votes or 13.62 percent of votes; community activist tallied 840 votes at 2.21 percent; Steven Paul Mozena received 182 votes at .48 percent; Mineo Gonzalez got 150 votes at .39 percent; Eric Rock received 149 votes also at .39 percent; Richard Anthony Camp received only 90 votes at .24 percent.

Longtime PTA member Megan Kerr got 3,209 votes or 51.32 percent of the vote for District of the Long Beach Unified School District Board and engineer Uduak-Joe Ntuk got 3,044 votes or 48.68 percent of the votes. The lead may change because of the close margin after the provisional ballots are counted.

Incumbent John McGinnis won against history professor Juan Benitez with 2,183 votes or 52.9 percent of the vote for the LBUSD District 3.
Diana Craighead, vice president of the school board, ran unopposed for District 5.

The only ballot issue in the election, a sales tax on medical marijuana, passed with 74.03 percent of the vote. That tax would go into effect, if or when, the Long Beach City Council approves an ordinance that would allow medical marijuana collectives in Long Beach.

Long Beach city would be able to impose a business license tax at an initial rate of 6 percent of for-profit dispensaries’ gross sales receipts for marijuana, which could be increased to up to 10 percent of gross marijuana sales.

The measure also provides for a tax, at a rate of $15 per square foot, on business property improvements made to grow medical marijuana, which could be increased to  $50 per square foot on business improvements.

Dispensaries that qualify as nonprofits would pay $10 per square foot of business improvements instead of a percentage of sales.
