I. Daneek Miller came out as the clear Democratic Party nominee to succeed term-limited City Councilman Leroy Comrie (D-St. Albans) when the city Board of Elections certified the election results Saturday, more than three weeks after the primary contest.
Miller, Comrie’s hand-picked successor, maintained the 24.35 percent of the votes he had when he claimed victory at his St. Albans campaign headquarters on primary night.
In the preliminary count, Clyde Vanel had garnered 21.79 percent of the total and said he would wait until all the ballots were totaled, but when all was said and done his share dencreased to 21.53 percent.
Sondra Peeden earned the fewest votes, just under 4 percent. She is also running on the Independence Party line and will face off against Miller in the Nov. 5 general election.
Joan Flowers came in at third place with 21.17 percent of votes, while Manuel Caughman drew 17.72 percent and Greg Mays captured 11.28 percent.
