In Forest Park’s Ward 1 City Council race, unofficial results indicate that incumbent Kimberly James beat challenger Trudy Smith.

James took 113 votes (68.1%) to Smith’s 53 (31.9%), for a total of 166 votes cast in the District 1 race.

All results are unofficial until provisional ballots are counted after 5 p.m. Friday, said City Clerk S. Diane White.

Both James and Smith were present for tonight’s tabulation. Neither commented afterwards.
