Political newcomer Ben Stuckart has a strong lead after Tuesday's vote total, which shows him leading former Mayor and Council President Dennis Hession in much of the city, from the lower South Hill and East Central through downtown, Browne's Addition, West Central and many northest precincts.

Compared to the mayor's race (click here for that map) this contest seems more settled, although there are still thousands of ballots to be counted.
