Ward 1 Primary Results: Neff And Rodriguez-Carbone Look Ahead To November

A very busy municipal election season in Lakewood saw its first set of results on Tuesday, September 10 in the Ward 1 primary. There were four candidates on the primary ballot, Matthew Fredrickson, Lindsey Grdina, Tess Neff, and Laura Rodriguez-Carbone. The top two candidates continue on to the general election in November. The results were as follows:

Fredrickson: 114

Grdina: 215

Neff: 439

Rodriguez-Carbone: 280

By the end of the evening on Tuesday, it was clear that Tess Neff and Laura Rodriguez-Carbone would both advance. Primary elections for council seats are only called when more than two candidates are on the ballot competing for one seat. The remainder of the ward specific council seats, mayor, and three of the five Board of Education member seats will appear on the November 5 general election ballot.
