SAN DIEGO — More than a week after the election, the race to fill the San Diego County Supervisors seat being vacated by pam Slater-Price has been decided.

Solana Beach Councilman Dave Roberts declared victory Thursday after his rival, Steve Danon, conceded defeat.

Danon, chief of staff to Rep. Brian Bilbray, called Roberts and released the following statement:

“As votes continue to be tallied, it is clear that the people have made their decision, and so today I have congratulated Dave Roberts for being elected the next San Diego County Supervisor.

Danon offered to help Roberts in his new role as supervisor.

“I ask all San Diego County residents to join me in supporting the incoming supervisor so that our region remains one where families can thrive, businesses can flourish, and government keeps its place as a small but transparent supporter of our quality, of life.”
