Incumbent Mayor Nader Baroukh was elected to a second four-year term on the Falls Church City Council tonight as he and David Tarter and Phil Duncan won the three seats by wide margins over four others in the field. Tarter, chair of the City’s Economic Development Authority, won the most votes at 1,293, followed by Baroukh with 1,189 and Duncan with 1,047. The voter turnout was 26 percent, high for a municipal-only election.
Failing to win election to a second term was Lawrence Webb. First elected by a 30-vote margin in 2008, he came in fifth among the seven candidates this time as his 672 votes trailed the winners plus John Lawrence’s 732 votes. It was the second failed attempt at the City Council for John Lawrence, former chair of the Planning Commission. William Henneberg and Paul Handly, both running for the first time, brought in the rear of the pack with 652 and 514 votes.
