Mike Morowit is the comeback kid of Manteca politics. First elected in 2014, Morowit came up 55 votes short in his bid for re-election four years later when he was edged by Jose Nuno for the last of two seats in a citywide election. Morowit was sworn in Tuesday as the first District 4 council member to represent the area of Manteca north of Louise Avenue west of Highway 99. He garnered 85.45 percent of the votes cast to defeat opponent Nancy Watson. In terms of Manteca trivia that makes Morowit the first person to be elected to the council  after previously losing a re-election bid.
