While numbers are not official just yet, it appears that Buckley carried all precincts across the City except for Ward 5’s 15th Precinct which is the Hunt Meadow neighborhood where Mayor Pantelides resides.

In the Aldermanic races, unofficial numbers show:

  • Ward 1 – Elly Tierney-D
  • Ward 2 – Fred Paone-R (incumbent)
  • Ward 3 – Rhonda Pindell-Charles-D (incumbent, unopposed)
  • Ward 4 – Sheila Finlayson-D (incumbent, unopposed, waiting on results from write-in candidate)
  • Ward 5 – Marc Rodriguez-D
  • Ward 6 – Shaneka Henson-D
  • Ward 7 – Rob Savidge-D
  • Ward 8 – Ross Arnett-D (incumbent, however there are 150 absentee ballots that may swing to Julie Mussog-R)

This article will be updated with unofficial totals when they are available.
