Davis wins Vallejo mayor race by 3 votes

The Solano County elections office has confirmed that former Solano County supervisor Osby Davis is Vallejo's new mayor. He won by three votes in a recount and will be the city's first black mayor.

Councilman Gary Coutier, who would have been the city's first gay mayor, was ahead by five votes before Davis, 62, asked for a recount which started Monday and ended Wednesday. 

Cloutier was prohibited from running for a third term and is now off the Vallejo City Council.

Cloutier had come under scrutiny around election time after he was arrested behind the wheel of a Cadillac on suspicion of public intoxication outside a Palm Springs bar.
