GEPENC election...results?

Well, word on the street has it that District 1 of the Echo-Elysian Neighborhood Council (GEPENC) has new reps: Christine Peters, the energetic and skilled servant of many neighborhood organizations, and Larry Pickens, who is dead. Like Peters, Pickens was a beloved community activist. He choked to death at home after his name was already on the neighborhood council ballot. He appears to be deeply missed by many in the neighborhood, as his election attests.

As for the other districts -- 2, 3 and 4 -- I can't say for sure who won seats to represent those in last Saturday's election. I checked GEPENC's website on and off during the week, and so far it doesn't appear to have been updated. The "election results" button leads to results from a previous year. I hope the tardy results posting is not a sign of dysfunction.
