The election contest between Wayne Self and Eric Mitchell continued Tuesday afternoon.

Early this afternoon, Special Judge Jeff Weill ruled against Wayne Self's contest of the November 2019 election for Supervisor District 4.

That leaves Eric Mitchell in office to continue as District 4 Supervisor.

Incumbent Wayne Self was defeated by Eric Mitchell by a 16 vote margin. He had hoped to overturn Mitchell's victory and obtain a new election, but Judge Weill ruled that he should not.
