Jared Taylor appears to have secured the remaining Gilbert Town Council seat, according to early unofficial results.

Taylor has won with nearly 55 percent of votes, while Sentz received 45 percent. All 36 precincts are reporting at this time.

“I’m so thrilled and grateful for all the people who took the time to study the issues and come out an vote,” Taylor said. “A lot of other great things happened for Gilbert tonight.”

Taylor, 39, a 16-year resident of Gilbert, is the business manager at Heritage Academy, a Mesa charter school. He was formerly a human resources professional at Motorola (6 years) and Honeywell (4 years).

“I definitely want to help the small business environment,” Taylor said about his future plans on the council. “To help the small business community have a bigger voice on the Town Council. Small businesses help build out the business base and they provide the most jobs, the best incomes and the most satisfaction.”

John Sentz, 67, who is retired from Motorola and the Naval Reserves after 34 years of service, first ran for town council in 2009. His bid for reelection came a year earlier than anticipated when Arizona changed the year for municipal elections to even-numbered years.

During the primary, only Jenn Daniels was able to obtain enough votes to achieve reelection with more than 50 percent of the number of votes cast in the mayoral race. Neither Sentz nor Taylor had enough votes and were relatively close to each other with 8,265 and 9,242, respectively, during the primary.
