Bredefeld, Brandau headed to November runoff

Both Fresno County Board of Supervisors races that cover the city of Fresno will have runoff elections in November.

Two hotly-contested Fresno County Board of Supervisors races appear to be headed to a runoff in November. 

No candidates in the District 2 or District 3 races received a majority vote on Tuesday, necessitating the runoff. 


District 2: Fresno City Councilman Garry Bredefeld leads the pack with 39.7 percent of the vote, per the latest count on Tuesday night. 

  • Incumbent Steve Brandau is in second place with 27.38 percent, followed by Fresno County Assessor-Recorder Paul Dictos at 16.43 percent. 
  • Bryce Herrera has 8.97 percent, while Dion Bourdase has 7.37 percent. 

District 3: Supervisor Sal Quintero is in first place with 40.95 percent of the vote. 

  • If the current standings remain, Quintero will face his former protege Fresno City Councilman Luis Chavez in November. 
  • Chavez is in second place with 25.3 percent, followed by fellow Councilman Miguel Arias at 17.54 percent. 
  • Edward Hinojosa nearly matched Arias on Tuesday at 15.75 percent. 

District 5: Supervisor Nathan Magsig secured his re-election to the board with 70.69 percent of the vote on Tuesday. 

  • His opponent, Jennifer Cruz, had 29.11 percent at the latest count.
