PORTLAND - Steve Novick handily won a city council seat Tuesday and Amanda Fritz and Mary Nolan were headed to a November runoff after neither gained the required 50 percent to win outright.
Commissioner Amanda Fritz is facing re-election and her main contender has been Mary Nolan all along. As of Wednesday morning, each had 45% of the vote.
Former candidate for Oregon Senate Steve Novick ran a high profile campaign and quickly climbed to 75% of the vote Tuesday night. He was running against six other candidates who each earned less than 8%.
Leonard has been with the city as a firefighter and commissioner for 35 years and is retiring. Fritz was elected in 2009.
