The Greens received a total of just under twenty five thousand votes with 8,321 (7.5%) of those going to the newly elected GYG committee WANG Chung-ming, candidate for Sinbei City councilor in his first time out ( 24,179 votes is the bottom line to win in this district).   Another first timer, 25-year-old LI Yingsyuan, who had joined the Greens as the Project Secretary for the APGN 2010 Congress held in Taipei earlier this year, finished with 4,939 votes (2.24%) in her district(13,863 votes is the bottom line to win in this district)
