Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria was the top vote getter in his re-election race Tuesday night, taking 62 percent of the 7,379 votes and easily besting challenger and Alderman Robert J. Van Campen 4,559 votes to 2,725.
The victory will make DeMaria the first mayor elected to a four-year term in the city, with the new governmental structure set to begin on January 1, 2014.
Joining Mayor DeMaria in the new government are a number of experienced politicians, though far fewer than in the expiring bi-cameral form of city government. Beginning January 1, the city council will be comprised of just one board with eleven members.
