Andre Spicer is expected to be sworn in at 1 p.m. Tuesday.
He will take office after a judge overturned last year’s election results in which he lost by one vote to two-year councilor Isaac Galvan.
The judge found that four of the votes cast in the election came from people who did not live in the council district. With those four votes disqualified, Spicer is now the winner.
“I am excited, thrilled and relieved that Judge Michelle Williams ruled in my favor,” Spicer said in a statement to ABC7. “We’ve worked so hard and tirelessly to prove our case and stand for a community that needed it most.
Galvan and several others are charged with voter fraud.
So far, neither Spicer nor Galvan have commented.
