MADERA - The results are in and all we know for sure is that the third time wasn't a charm for challenger Brian Austin as Madera County Superior Count Judge Joseph Soldani ran away with the election early in the night with 61.4% of the vote.

However in the Madera County Supervisor District 3 race we still don't know who will replace the out-going Ronn Dominici. Svanda, Dominici's hand-picked successor, only garnered 38.6% of the vote with Rick Farinelli, cousin to former Madera County CEO Stell Manfredi, took 28.5%. Isabel Barreras followed in third with 23.8%. Svanda and Farinelli will face each other again in November's general election.
