City of Naples voters resoundingly kept their municipality and elections non-partisan yesterday.
City Council elections are supposed to be non-partisan, according to the City charter.
Winners in the election for three Council seats all ran as non-partisan candidates. According to the Collier County Supervisor of Elections, with all seven precincts reporting, the three winners in order of their vote totals were: Beth Petrunoff with 23.8 percent of the vote (3,899 votes); Vice Mayor Terry Hutchison with 23 percent (3,763 votes) and Councilman Ray Christman with 21.4 percent (3,496 votes).
John Dugan, a conservative who, along with the Republican Collier County Citizens Values Political Action Committee (CCCVPAC) had targeted Christman for having once been a registered Democrat, was defeated, gaining only 16.9 percent (2,766 votes).
Ian Rudnick, a former Naples police officer, came in last with 14.8 percent (2,426 votes).
Of 16,497 eligible voters, 6,572 or 39.8 percent voted.
