It's official: Sykes wins Toledo council seat by 5 votes

Members of the Lucas County Board of Elections hand counted ballots from November's election.

It took more than a month, but the results from the November General Election have finally been made official.

The Lucas County Board of Elections announced the results of its recount of two races Thursday -- the Toledo City Council at Large and the Ottawa Hills Village Council.

The recount didn't change the results of the Toledo race. Larry Sykes beat out incumbent Adam Martinez. Sykes won by just 5 votes.

The new Toledo City Council at Large member says he's looking forward to working with the new Mayor Mike Collins administration.

Martinez says he will look into the possibility of representing Toledo's District 2 in the near future.

In Ottawa Hills, the results stood from the original count. Robert Reichert beat Edward Shimborske by just one vote.
