Knight regains lead in close Los Rios trustee contest

Former El Dorado County Supervisor John Knight moved back into the lead Thursday in the race for a spot on the Los Rios Community College District board.

In the tight Area 3 contest, Knight leads Center High School teacher Marc Allaman by 22 votes after El Dorado County posted its latest count from the Nov. 4 election. More than 51,000 votes were cast in the race.

Area 3 includes most of El Dorado County and a section of eastern Sacramento County. Allaman took his first lead Wednesday by four votes before Knight moved back ahead Thursday. Sacramento and El Dorado counties are still tallying provisional ballots filed on Election Day.
