Johnson, 55, has worked for the Crystal Geyser Water Company as a business executive. However, he is familiar with city affairs, considering he worked with the Cypress Parks and Recreation Department and the Traffic Commission in the past.

Yarc, on the other hand, has made a living as an attorney and practices family law.

Council members Phil Luebben and Todd Seymore have been termed out due to a rule that council members can only serve two terms in the city in their lifetime.

In other action, the Cypress School District race was won by Candi Kern, who pulled in 5,630. She was followed by  Brian Nakamura, who grabbed the other seat with 5,543. Alexandria Coronado             ended with 4,854 and Jimmy Fuller got 4,120 votes.

Cypress also had a hand to play in the Anaheim Union High School District races, because Cypress High is a part of that school District. The winners of those elections – the full term and short term – were Katherine H. Smith, who pulled in 32,964, and Brian O’neal, who had 29,418 votes, to fill the full term race and Annemarie Randle-Trejo snagged the short term seat with 29,520 votes.
