Results from the post-Nov. 3 election hand count are beginning to trickle in. On Wednesday, the city released the outcomes for Southwest wards 6, 11 and 13. Ward 7 was added on Friday.
Overall, there were no significant changes from results available since election night. That meant:
– Incumbent City Council Member Robert Lilligren (6th Ward) won in the first round by receiving 1,020 of 1,930 votes, or 52.3 percent. Lilligren was followed by Mike Tupper, who received 292 votes, and Laura Jean, who received 231 votes.
– Incumbent Council Member Lisa Goodman (7th Ward), who had the largest incumbent cash flow of anybody besides Mayor R.T. Rybak, won with 2,997 of 4,392 first-round votes, or 68.2 percent. Michael Katch came in second with 1,042 votes and Jeff Wagner third with 321 votes.
– Newcomer John Quincy will succeed outgoing Council Member Scott Benson in the 11th Ward. Quincy received 2,551 of 4,010 first-round votes, or 63.6 percent. In second was Gregg Iverson, with 734 votes, and David Alvarado came in third with 704 votes.
– Incumbent City Council Member Betsy Hodges (13th Ward) won with 4,141 of 5,981 first-round votes, or 69.2 percent. She handily beat challengers Kris Broberg (1,578 votes) and Joseph Henry (256 votes).
In non-Southwest wards, incumbent council members Cam Gordon (2nd Ward), Don Samuels (5th Ward) and Sandy Colvin Roy (12th Ward) also were confirmed to have won new terms. Samuels was the first candidate to win in a runoff; the contest took two rounds’ worth of counting.
Hand counting is occurring in this order: Ward 13, 12, 2, 11, 6, 7, 5, 10, 4, 3, 1, 8 and 9. Until counting is complete and the results can be certified, all winners remain unofficial.
