— Voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved two major bond issues in Cary and gave Mayor Harold Weinbrecht another term in office.

With nearly all precincts reporting, Weinbrecht easily defeated Dero-Asha Davis-Weeks 84 percent to 15 percent, according to unofficial results.

A proposal to issue $113 million in bonds for transportation upgrades, including wider intersections and improved sidewalks, passed by an 80-20 margin.

More than three-quarters of voters supported a referendum to use $112 million in bonds to add parks and preserve open spaces in Cary.

In the lone contested Town Council race, Ya Liu defeated incumbent Ken George in the District D seat 58 to 37 percent.
