Incumbents Amy Scoggins and Paul Rebholz were officially reelected to their seats on Woodbury City Council just after midnight Wednesday with 29 and 28 percent of the votes in field of six candidates.
Challenger Natalie Miller garnered 21 percent of the votes, good enough for third place.
Scoggins said she spent her evening at home with her family and made sure her children were in bed before 9:30, even though she was getting updates online through midnight, when the election results became official.
"My oldest (who is 7) said 'I hope you win, Mom, but I'm going to bed now," Scoggins said. "I was a little anxious, because you never know exactly how these things are going to turn out."
Scoggins and Rebholz held a steady lead throughout the night as Woodbury's 15 precincts were reported to the Secretary of State website.
Scoggins said she's excited that she and Rebholz, who were both elected to their first term in 2004, will be working together on the council for another term.
"I think our current council works really well together and I'm excited that Paul will be back too," she said.
Rebholz, who spent some time during election night thanking campaign supporters at an event at Ray J's, said he too was satisfied with the results and thanked all the candidates who put their names on the ballot.
"Clearly, I want to thank all the folks who filed or ran for office," Rebholz said. "I wish the best to them and hope that people realize that we have a lot of people already engaged in helping make the city work, but we definitely need more to step up and help. The more people that are engaged the better."
