Some incumbents were struggling here.

Tolbert’s lead is just 50.5 percent to 49 percent.

On the City Council, Sue Weiss is losing badly to Michele Blythe 1,126 to 905, or 55 percent to 44 percent.

For school board, Sue’s husband, director Jim Weiss, was doing better against Sheri Kelly, ahead 1,992 to 1,776, or 53 percent to 47 percent.
