Like the general election, one race was particularly close. And like the general election, both incumbents got the most votes.

Marsha Anderson Bomar and Jim Dugan won re-election to the Duluth City Council on Tuesday (Dec. 3), keeping the panel's makeup the same for the next couple of years.

Bomar received 292 votes for Post 1, to 229 (43 percent) for challenger David Cossette.

Dugan won by 14 votes, receiving 271 votes to 257 for challenger Seth Grey on Post 2.

"Honored to serve and looking forward to mentoring the next generation of leadership," Bomar said after the vote totals were announced.

Said Cossette, "I'll take my inspiration from a quote from Paul Brown. 'If you win say nothing.  If you lose say even less.' "

Grey, who qualified for the runoff by just nine votes, said, "Thank you so much to everyone who supported us during this election season. Hats off to Jim! Hannah and I are so grateful for the votes, prayers, and words of encouragement. We love the City of Duluth, and we can't wait to make memories and serve Duluth for years to come!! Truly grateful to everyone who voted for us!"

The new council terms begin in January.
