Terence Pratt won the final Cottonwood City Council seat in the Tuesday, May 15, general election over rival John Altizer, according to the unofficial results.
Pratt took 53 percent of the vote with 305 of the 576 voters who cast ballots. Altizer received 47 percent, or 271. Voter turnout was just under 11 percent of the city’s 5,317 registered voters.
“I’m humbled and excited to work with this new council and the new mayor,” Pratt said in a telephone interview Wednesday morning.
The results are a flip from the results of the primary election, where Altizer came out on top with 18 percent of the voters casting ballots.
Pratt will be sworn in, along with Diane Joens as mayor and Ron Hollis and Duane Kirby, who won their seats in the March 13 primary election.
Altizer and Pratt did not receive enough votes in March so they had to go to a runoff in the May 15 general election.
