Alex Roman: 785
Kevin Ryan: 1,153
Teena Schwartz: 544

Turnout for the highly contested election was a paltry 21.2%, with only 7.9% of the voters in district 1, the Claridge towers, turning out. The total turnout in the 2012 presidential election was 65.7%, down more than 10 percentage points from the 2008 general election. The new Council will be sworn in in July.

  1. The voters of Verona have spoken…and they,um,sorta kinda mumbled. The tally suggests that individual voters may have split their votes among candidates with antithetical platforms. Is this the concept of checks and balances writ small?
