Birmingham City Council results here. Congratulations to Lashunda Scales, who roundly kicked Joel Montgomery‘s drunk, bigoted rear. That beating was metaphorical, of course, unlike his alleged abuse of his wife. He will not be missed.
Districts 2, 5, 6, 7 and 9 will have runoffs, with probably the biggest surprise in District 6 — Sheila Tyson garnered 39% of the vote, while incumbent and current City Council president Carole Smitherman only got 43%. Incumbents Valerie Abbott, Maxine Herring Parker, and Steven Hoyt will remain on the Council.
Birmingham School Board results here. Only three incumbents, Virginia Volker, April Williams and Phyllis Wyne, won re-election outright. One lost, and three face runoffs. Newcomer Tyrone Belcher Sr. won in District 1, and Elisa Burns Macon and Brian Giattina are headed for a runoff in District 3.
