Mansoor holds a 502 vote lead over Mayor Steve Mensinger. Jay Humphrey is only 54 votes behind him. Lee Ramos and Al Melone are far behind.

FAIRVIEW PARK ISSUES
Citizen-generated Measure AA holds a more than 2-1 lead. Measure BB, the other City-generated measure designed to fool voters, is failing badly.
MEDICAL MARIJUANA ISSUES
Both citizen-generated medical marijuana measures are failing at the ballot box. Measure X, the City-generated measure is passing.
This measure, hijacked by Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer to create 6 districts and add a directly-elected mayor to the mix, is passing by nearly a 2-1 ratio.
