by Mick Rhodes |

After a tumultuous campaign, Brian Bowcock’s 19-year run as the Division III Board Member for Three Valleys Municipal Water District is over. Challenger and political newcomer Jeff Hanlon is the winner of that race.

Though the results aren’t yet final, Hanlon, with 51.4% of the 15,296 votes counted thus far, has defeated Bowcock, who has netted 33.4% of the ballots. Javier Aguilar is in third place with 15.2%.
