Only one mayoral race was on the ballot for Central Coast voters on Tuesday, and that was for the City of Morro Bay.

Incumbent Jamie Irons will keep his job after garnering 56.73 percent of the vote as of Wednesday morning, to challenger Carla Wixon's 42.84 percent.

"I've been very proud of the way our campaign has been run, you know we've been focusing on reaching out to our neighbors and talking with them personally about their interests and concerns," said Irons. "I'm hopeful that we can put the election behind us and focus on a common objective, and that's the community that we love."
