Post-Standard on City Council Election Results

The council that takes office in 2014 will remain completely Democratic if the results hold up.

Two new faces to join Syracuse Common Council, if results hold

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Voters today elected two new Syracuse city councilors and re-elected six others, according to preliminary results from the Onondaga County Board of Elections. The council that takes office in 2014 will remain completely Democratic if the results hold up.

...

Fourth District: Democrat Khalid Bey won re-election to a second two-year term in a rematch with Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins. Bey, who beat Hawkins in 2011 by fewer than 100 votes, won by nearly 500 tonight, 1,471 to 995.

Bey was also endorsed by the Working Families Party, which hired paid canvassers and coordinated an intensive get-out-the-vote effort on his behalf during the past few weeks.

Hawkins is now 0 for 20 in election campaigns. The 60-year-old graveyard shift worker at United Parcel Service has campaigned for a variety of offices, from city councilor to governor, but has never won.
