Stanton’s District 1 incumbent City Councilman Rigoberto Ramirez ran unopposed, thus holding his seat.

Votes still need to be certified in all elections, so results are still considered unofficial.

Shawver said his biggest priority moving forward is business development.

“The one thing I want to do is continue the economic development and growth of the city of Stanton,” he said.

He also thanked the more than 2,500 residents who voted for him.

“What an honor and a privilege it is to continue my work in serving the people of Stanton.”
