It\s Election Day; several candidates are running for office in Fontana
Acquanetta Warren wins third term as Fontana mayor in November election
Acquanetta Warren fought off five challengers to win her third term as Fontana’s mayor, final unofficial election returns show.

Warren led the field all night, and unofficial results posted at 3:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6, show she won nearly 58 percent of the 23,142 votes cast in the race. Her closest competition was Councilman Jesus “Jesse” Sandoval, who won about 18 percent of the vote.

With no primary election to whittle the field to two, Warren, Jesse Sandoval, Carlos Sandoval, Hafsa Sharafat, Mylinda Carrillo and Lorena Corona sought the city’s top elected office Tuesday, with voters weighing concerns over public safety, a growing number of warehouses and other pressing issues in making their decision.

Warren called Tuesday evening’s figures “very encouraging,” adding: “We have another four years to finish up all the things we need to do with Fontana.”
