Carmel's municipal election tally:
Mayor Sue McCloud: 789
Adam Moniz: 674
Jason Burnett: 1081
Paula Hazdovac: 646
Gerard Rose: 588
Sue McCloud begins her second decade in office, while Hazdovac enters her 17th year on the City Council. Rose was ousted after a decade of service.
"I'm disappointed," said the veteran City Councilman after the tally was in on election night.
Jason Burnett will likely shift the dynamic on Carmel's governing body where dissent was an anolmaly and unanimous voting was the norm. Burnett says he'll start his term by investigating allegations of sexual harassment against City Administrator Rich Guillen.
Final election results will likely be available Wednesday afternoon . Tuesday's election was the first in Monterey County to be run by private contractor Martin and Chapman of Anaheim.
