EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)- Results show Kerry Kincaid ahead in the race for Eau Claire City Council President against challenger Monica Lewis.
Tuesday night Kincaid hosted a watch party in downtown Eau Claire where spirits were high.
Kincaid said that the 2014 race for city council has been the most energetic and demanding race that she has been a part of.
She said while she focused part of her campaign around the Confluence Project, there are many other issues she hopes to tackle in another term as city council president.
As for the results of the Confluence Project referendums, Kincaid says the vote Tuesday night gives them the ability to make the next steps in planning the future of downtown.
“I think the vote tonight shows that the community is behind a Confluence Project. They are behind the next step. We needed this referendum to be able to move on and show the state that we have this support behind us and show that we are ready to work out those details,” Kincaid explained.
Kincaid said following Tuesday night's vote she plans on meeting with representatives from UW-Eau Claire to discuss the confluence project later Wednesday afternoon.
