Election Results and 13th District Update

September 14, 2011
By

Well, the primary election is over–with the lowest turnout in history–and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has coasted to victory over a strong field. On the City Council front, there was an upset and a near upset, with Nick Mosby beating long-time incumbent Belinda Conaway in the 7th District and Shannon Sneed running just 15 votes behind incumbent Warren Branch in the 13th. The score: 1,713 for Branch, 1,698 for Sneed.

Looks like a recount there. Says Sneed, by e-mail:

“When I first decided to run for city council it was because of a desire to improve our community. We deserve safe and clean streets, good schools, and jobs. The citizens of district 13 are wonderful supporters. I remain committed to those goals while we wait on ALL the votes to be counted. It is not over! That’s my statement for now.”

Update: As astute reader Matt Gonter informs us, the absentee ballots are not yet counted.
