The three citywide candidates--Rick Rector for mayor, Tom DePietro for Common Council president, and Heather Campbell for treasurer--were all running unopposed, hence the unofficial election night results provide no surprises. In the race for mayor, Rector got 1,214 votes, and there were 89 write-ins. In the race for Common Council president, DePietro got 1,312 votes, and there were 10 write-ins. In the race for treasurer, Campbell got 1,106 votes, and there were 6 write-ins.
Now for the contested local races.
In the race for the two Second Ward alderman seats, the unofficial tally is: Tiffany Garriga 168; Dewan Sarowar 137; Victor Mendolia 102; Martin Martinez 51. In the race for Second Ward supervisor, the unofficial results have Abdus Miah besting Willette Jones 148 to 112.
In the race for the two Fourth Ward alderman seats, the unofficial tally is: Rich Volo 197; John Rosenthal 196; Lauren Scalera 107. In the race for Fourth Ward supervisor, Linda Mussmann appears to have unseated the incumbent Bill Hughes by a substantial margin: 201 to 109.
In the race for the two Fifth Ward alderman seats, the unofficial tally is: Dominic Merante 247; Eileen Halloran 200; Robert "Doc" Donahue 156.
There are still absentee ballots to be counted, but it seems unlikely they will change anything.
