Mesa voters will get an opportunity to select two new city council members in the Nov. 6 general election, after a large field of candidates contributed to splintered voting that gave no one a majority in the central and west districts.

Council member Dave Luna was the only incumbent facing an opponent to gain a plurality, or more than 50 percent of the vote, when he defeated challenger Verl Farnsworth in northeast Mesa’s District 5. Kevin Thompson, who was unopposed, and won re-election in District 6.

The two other contested elections in west Mesa’s district 3 and central Mesa’s district 4 were nail-biters, where no candidate gained 50 percent, requiring that voters pick a winner in runoff elections on Nov. 6.
