Cleveland's 17 city council seats will include some new faces starting in January.
In Ward 7, Basheer Jones beat out incumbent TJ Dow in a close race.
Jones surpassed Dow in the unofficial tally by 19 votes. Dow was first elected in 2007 to the East Side ward that includes Hough and St. Clair-Superior.
At his watch party near Downtown Cleveland, after the votes were counted, Jones called for unity between his supporters and Dow’s.
