Thumbnail image for 110520 Jimenez.JPGUnion delegates in Las Vegas have just re-elected Mike Jimenez to a three-year term as president of the California Correctional Peace Officers Association.

Here's the vote count, as reported to The State Worker by Pacovilla blogger and CCPOA retiree Bob Walsh, who is attending the union's annual convention at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino:

Mike Jimenez: 251 votes / 60 percent of ballots cast
Marques Jones: 118 votes / 28 percent
John Lanthripp: 35 votes / 8 percent
C.J. Mohammed: 6 votes / 1 percent
Chuck Alexander 6 votes / 1 percent (Alexander closed his candidacy prior to the election)

The percentages don't total 100 percent due to rounding.

Walsh reports that 24 delegates abstained, including all 10 from Pelican Bay State Prison.
