Eagle City Council President Brad Pike defeated incumbent Eagle Mayor Jason Pierce Tuesday night to win the seat.
The December runoff election was necessary after no single candidate earned the 50% +1 votes required during the November election.
Idaho Dispatch covered the details and context of the heated, contentious contest here, which culminated in Tuesday’s results.
41.8% of Eagle voters cast a ballot through mail-in, early voting, or election day voting. Pike received 5,444 votes or 55.2%, while Pierce received 4,427 votes or 44.8%. The Ada County Elections website shows the map with the breakdown of which candidate won each Eagle precinct.
Following the winning results, Pike had this to say:
“I really want us to unify. I know that’s kind of a pie-in-the-sky thought at times. We’re not always going to see eye to eye on things, that’s okay. But the harmony part I’m talking about is where people can be proud to say that they live in the city of Eagle, they can look forward to the direction the city’s going.”
