Fremont council whittles list of council applicants down to six

The Fremont City Council on Wednesday whittled down the list of candidates applying for the fifth and final open council seat. At the special meeting, each of the four council members listed their top 5 candidates, in no particular order. Any candidate who received at least two (or more) votes made the cut. Six candidates were fortunate enough to do so. They are listed below. Four candidates did not make the cut.  Here are the two lists:

Candidates Who Made the Cut

David Bonaccorsi: 4

Raj Salwan: 4

Christina Broadwin: 3

Yogi Chugh: 3

John J. Dutra: 3

Rick Jones: 2


Candidates Who Did Not Make the Cut

Rakesh Sharma: 1

Tariq Ali: 0

Robert Brunton: 0

Robert Chavez:  0


Next up,  the six candidates who made the cut will be publicly interviewed in another special meeting at 5 p.m. Monday (Jan. 14). Stay tuned.
