Vanessa Delgado Wins 32nd Seat by 1,711 Votes Over Topalian

Vanessa Delgado

By Brian Hews

With all precincts reporting, Montebello Mayor Vanessa Delgado garnered 21,899 – 52.03%- beating Republican Rita Topalian by only 1,711 votes.

Topalian got 20,188 votes, 47.97%.

Delgado will only serve until Dec. 3, just shy of one month after the November election between Bob Archuleta and Rita Topalian.

The win puts Delgado is a precarious position, serving as both the Mayor of Montebello and State Senator puts her squarely into an incompatible office position.

D.A. Jackey Lacey has shown a penchant for going after Latino elected officials, including Albert Robles and Pedro Aceituno, for incompatible offices while ignoring others.
