Editor's note: This story has been updated with the latest election results.
Unofficial election results on June 5 show Angelia Pelham defeated Jennifer White in the race for the Place 3 seat on the Frisco City Council.
Pelham finished the night with 53.01% of votes.
She delivered a victory speech at her watch party held at The Patios at The Rail, according to a video posted to Facebook by Eva Gray Coleman.
“I’m at a loss for words. But I'm just so thankful that Frisco has spoken,” Pelham said. “A mentor of mine who has been mentoring me throughout this campaign always reminded me that, ‘Angelia, there are good, decent, civil people who want the right thing, so trust and believe that they are there.’ And I see tonight that they are here.”
Pelham will fill the spot held by Will Sowell, who reached term limits. Four candidates sought to replace him in the May 1 election, but no candidate earned over 50% of votes, so the pair with the two highest votes advanced to a runoff.
Pelham is the CEO of Real-Talk Executive Coaching & Consulting with over 30 years of experience as a senior executive.
