Washburn freshman and teenage CEO Zach Haney came up short in Tuesday night’s city council primary elections.

Haney was vying for the District 4 seat, which was left open when Councilwoman Denise Everhart opted to not run for re-election.

District 4 candidate Anthony Schumm led with 37 percent, followed by Les Parrish with 29 percent. Christina Rondash came in third with 18 percent of the votes, leaving Haney in dead last with 15.9 percent.

Of the 7,529 registered voters in District 4, fewer than 900 made it out to the polls for Tuesday’s primary election.

Haney is the owner of Carnival Guy and author of “The Teen CEO: Lessons from a Teenage Business Owner.”
