There will be two new faces on the Jackson City Council after Tuesday’s election.

Jeromy Alexander narrowly defeated incumbent Daniel Greer for the Ward 3 council seat. Just 21 votes separated Alexander and Greer.

The totals: Alexander 331, Greer 310.

Alexander will be joined by Colleen Sullivan, who beat out three other people for the Ward 6 seat. Derek Dobies held the seat and decided to vacate it when recalled.

Dobies was already running for mayor and won.

That left Sullivan, who won almost half the vote in a four-way race.

The totals:

  • Colleen Sullivan: 709
  • Jeffrey Feahr: 489
  • John Wilson: 230
  • Matthew Swartzlander: 66

They join Andrew Frounfelker, who easily won re-election to the Ward 5 seat. He beat competitor Susan Murdie by a margin of more than 3-to-1.

Arlene Robinson, who already represents Ward 1, was unopposed.
