It looks like Pembroke Mayor Judy Cook will win a fifth term in office, according to unofficial results from city clerk  Sharroll Fanslau.

Cook received 353 votes to challenger Sharon Lewis’ 109 in Tuesday's general election. 

Incumbent Post 4 councilwoman Tiffany Walraven was also expected to win re-election to a fourth term, outpolling challenger Edward Winter 117-39.

Those results are unofficial until they are certified by the Secretary of State’s office, Fanslau said.

In Richmond Hill, it appears Robbie Ward won the city’s Post 2 race by narrowly defeating David T. London, 684 to 630, according to Dawnne Greene, the city clerk and election superintendent .

In the Post 3 race, challenger Mark Ott apparently easily defeated incumbent Bill Donohue, who was appointed in January to fill a vacancy on council by a margin of 713 to 545.

Incumbent Post 4 Les Fussell, also an appointee, is in a runoff with Steve Scholar, with neither candidate getting 50 percent of the vote in the three-way race which also included Chakiris “Chuck” Moss.

Scholar had 618 votes while Fussell had 466. The runoff is scheduled for Dec. 3, according to Greene. 

In addition, voters approved the city's Tax Allocation District measure by a 2-to-1 margin. It passed by a vote of 870-432. 

Richmond Hill’s results also have to be certified by the secretary of state.
