Four final seats on the Dallas City Council were decided in runoffs tonight.

District 3: Casey Thomas won with 53 percent of the vote. Opponent Joe Tave has Stonewall and DGLA support. Thomas is Vonciel Jones Hill’s handpicked successor. Hopefully he won’t be as completely obnoxious on the council as she has been.

District 7: Tiffinni Young beat Kevin Felder with 55 percent of the vote. Young had DGLA’s support,

District 8: Erik Wilson beat Dianne Gibson with 60 percent of the vote. Wilson will be an LGBT ally on the council.

District 10: Adam McGough is the apparent winner by just 45 votes out of 5965 cast. McGough has DGLA’s support.

They join Gail King Arnold in District 4 and Mark Clayton in District 9, who were elected in the May election.

Council members Scott Griggs, Adam Medrano, Lee Kleinman, Sandy Greyson, Jennifer Gates, Monica Alonzo, Rick Callahan and Philip Kingston were reelected and return for another term.
