This special election pitted Shafer against former state schools superintendent Diane Douglas, and fills former councilmember Bridget Binsbacher’s seat, who stepped down to run for mayor.

In the race for the Mesquite District, Shafer had 6,438 votes or 52% of the vote, and his opponent former state schools superintendent Diane Douglas had 5,831, or 48%, according to official results.

Shafer was previously appointed by city council in April to fill the vacancy. His term will run through 2024.
