("The results of an election that saw nearly $180,000 spent on candidate campaigns ushered in a new City Council and the possibility for significant change in Columbia.

With fists in the air, Don Stamper, executive director of the Central Missouri Development Council, and Fred Parry, publisher of Inside Columbia, celebrated the final results.

Finance reports show election winners were big spenders.

"Trifecta!" Parry said at mayor-elect Bob McDavid's election night watch party.
