Voters gave the city its first black mayor, awarding Democrat Freeman Bosley Jr. a landslide victory over three opponents. With 89% of the vote counted, Bosley had 67% to 17% for his Republican opponent, John O'Gorman. Two independent candidates split the remaining votes. Bosley succeeds Vince Schoemehl, who decided not to seek a fourth four-year term after a bid for the Democratic nomination for governor last year.

And a dead man was listed as the chief plaintiff in a lawsuit filed on election day in November. He was having trouble voting, the suit said, due to long lines at his polling station. So he petitioned a judge--successfully--to keep city ballot boxes open late.
