Sep. 27, 2011
(9 p.m.)— Frank Baker rode a strong surge from his Savin Hill neighborhood into the top spot in today's District 3 city council election, outpacing his nearest competitor by several hundred votes. John O'Toole of Cedar Grove won a hotly contested fight for the second slot, besting third place finisher Craig Galvin by roughly 140 votes, according to campaign sources. Baker and O'Toole will face off in a Nov. 8 final election to fill a vacancy on the council that will be left by longtime Councillor Maureen Feeney.
