Durango voters elect three City Council candidates
Youssef, Buell and Bosmans earn four-year terms
Newcomers Jessika Buell and Olivier Bosmans, along with incumbent Melissa Youssef, won Tuesday’s Durango City Council election, which was largely framed by affordable housing and how best to help local businesses recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
Youssef received the most votes, 3,766, according to final but unofficial results. Buell followed with 2,671 votes, and Bosmans with 1,847 votes.
The six candidates competed for three seats on City Council, those currently held by Dean Brookie, Chris Bettin and incumbent candidate Youssef. The candidates join councilors Barbara Noseworthy and Kim Baxter. They will begin their four-year terms after taking the oath of office April 20.
