Preliminary 100% results from “the runoffs”:https://westnorth.com/2007/02/27/elections-woah/ indicate that *five* incumbents have been defeated:
2nd: Fioretti over Haithcock (wide margin)
3rd: Dowell over Tillman
16th: Thompson over Coleman (conceded)
24th: Dixon over Chandler
32nd: “Waguespack”:http://www.flickr.com/photos/paytonc/463696414/ over Matlak
Added to the three decided in February and the one open seat (15th, won by Foulkes), and that’s nine new faces — 18% of the 50! We have some great new aldermen, too, with plenty of opportunities for a fresh urban agenda.
