Mike Shugart won his ninth straight election to the West Orange City Council Saturday while Jay Odom and Lanie Brown were first-time winners.

Odom, a runnerup for city council in 2021, had the top vote total of 136, with Shugart next 98, followed by Brown with 91 and Droddy-Lopez with 75.
Voters were allowed to vote for three candidates in this election. A total of 210 ballots were cast from 1,890 registered voters in the city.
