Regan replaces Albus on Abilene City Council

Blaise Regan has won the Place 3 seat on the Abilene City Council.

Regan took 58% of the vote on Saturday. He beat out three other candidates: James Sargent who got 23%, Shawnte Fleming who got 15%, and Cynthia Alvidrez who got 6% in the race to replace Donna Albus in the Place 3 seat. “It feels good. Feeling very humbled by how much support and all the voters behind me,” Regan told KACU over the weekend.

Regan says now that he has won, he has a lot of work to do, “Now it’s looking at all of the things I’ve discussed with voters and then looking at what is in front of the city council for the next meeting and starting the nitty gritty.”

He says Abilene is only getting better and he is looking forward to making the city more livable for young graduates and small business owners, “Abilene voters have said we believe in the direction we’re going and instead of taking a step back perhaps we’re taking a step up.”

Once the election has been certified Regan will be sworn in along with Place 4 City Councilman Brian Yates and Mayor Weldon Hurt.
