    Could you please publish to voting record for that mayoral vote.
    It will give me a lot of information moving forward with new fall candidates as I compare who has endorsed new candidates with this recent vote. Lots of information in this vote.

      3-4 in favor of Valderrama on the first vote (Valderrama, Hornish, Malchow in favor).
      Unanimous for Keller once Valderrama was declined.
