ALCO Assessor: Phong La, Jim Johnson advance to November runoff

Phong La, following Tuesday's result, heads into the November rematch as the likely favorite.

The four-candidate race for Alameda County Assessor failed to deliver a winner Tuesday night, although first-time candidates Phong La and Jim Johnson advanced to a November runoff.

La, who earned a large number of endorsements from well-known establishment candidates topped the field with 36 percent of the vote.

Johnson, who works in the Assessor’s Office, earned 26 percent, edging out John Weed for second-place. Since neither candidate reach a majority of the June primary tally, they will met again later this year.

Weed, a member of the Alameda County Water District, finished third with 22 percent, followed by Kevin Lopez, an appraiser in the Assessor, with 15 percent.
