Rounds, 57, said he is looking forward to working with the other council members, including Mayor Joe Serrano, 57, who was re-elected Tuesday to a second term. “I just want to make good, reasonable decisions,” he said.

Rounds, an engineering technician, has been on the Planning Commission for nine years and has worked with city and school organizations for the past 25 years. He said the deciding factor in his win was the fact of being a known commodity. “People know me because of my involvement, and I’ve earned their respect.” Rounds said. “I’ve worked my way up to the position.” Serrano did not return calls seeking comment on his successful campaign.
