Â 30,657 votes were cast, the incumbent Mayor Healy received a winning 53%percent share of the vote ,Â while his closest opponent LouisÂ Manzo had 26.3 percent. The other candidates Harvey L. Smith received 12.9 percent, Dan Levin 5.6 percent and Phil Webb 2.2 percent. Absentee and provisional ballots have to still be counted, however,Â theÂ margin Â of votes clearly signals Healy the winner on the first ballot.
Â It seems as the results came Councilman Steven Fullop has retained his seat in Ward E receiving roughly half of the 4000 plus votes cast in that downtownÂ ward Â race.
Some of the council seats maybe headed for a June run-off as late hour tabulation of votes were still be conducted.
