As of the 11:03 p.m. update from the Contra Costa County Elections Office, Lori Ogorchock had pulled into the lead for the two seats for the Antioch City Council, ahead of appointed Councilman Tony Tiscareno, who she had trailed all night. They both were ahead of Antioch School Board Member Diane Gibson-Gray, who was in a strong third place all night, ahead of fourth place candidate Lamar Thorpe.

I’m just in total suprise,” Ogorchock stated about moving into first place. “It was unexpected. I’m overwhelmed.”

With the votes from 27 of the 49 Antioch precincts counted, Ogorchock had 2,909 votes to Tiscareno’s 2,825, while Gibson-Gray had 2,628 votes and Thorpe trailed the top three with 2,099 votes.

Tiscareno said he would wait until morning to make a comment, since the race was still too close to call.

The other four candidates, Anthony Segovia, Jeffrey Hall-Cottrell, Karl Dietzel and Steven Bado, were far back in the pack.
