Ward 3 election results: Heart of Missoula goes to incumbent Gwen Jones

Incumbent Gwen Jones in Ward 3 will become Missoula’s longest-serving active councilmember when she’s sworn in early next year. Jones retained her council seat by fighting off challenger Sam Kulla, an online international high school teacher.

Jones tallied 2,442 votes to Kulla’s 1,679 on her way to her third term.

Jones has served as Council vice president, president and interim mayor with the city.

“I’m really happy if I get to serve for another four years,” Jones said Tuesday night as results trickled in. “I’m thrilled about that.”

Tax reform is among Jones’ top priorities. She also said she’s looking forward to a new mayor and a new council makeup.

“I think we’ve got probably some strong people coming onto council,” she said. “It’s a really busy time in Missoula and we all need to lean in.”
