<< 2001 election | 2003 election >>
On May 7, 2002 Charlottesville held elections for two seats on the City Council.
David Toscano did not run for re-election to Council, resulting in a large field for the Democratic nominations. Blake Caravati and Alexandra Searls were nominated, defeating challengers Joan Fenton, Waldo Jaquith, Bern Ewert and David Simmons.
|J. Blake Caravati (D) incumbent||2,512||33.96|
|Robert S. Schilling (R)||2,176||29.42|
|Alexandria P. Searls (D)||2,049||27.70|
|Stratton J. Salidis (I)||659||8.91|
Voters could cast two votes, one for each of the two seats available, hence the percentages do not total 100%.
