Mayor Charles V. Smith defeated two challengers for his seat, but Councilwoman Anita Huseth lost her reelection bid to Craig Schweisinger.
Voters also shot down a controversial proposal to hike business license fees and approved a measure that would designate a council seat in the 1992 election as a two-year post.
Smith captured almost half the vote in running well ahead of his challengers, Councilman Frank Fry Jr. and Darryl De Graw, who received around 25% each.
"I think basically it says that people of Westminster are satisfied with the direction the city is going as far as redevelopment and as far as the road to fiscal recovery is concerned. I think it was a good, clean campaign all the way around. Most candidates stuck to the issues," Smith said.
