Election results... by the numbers

As a loudmouth freshman city councilor, people called Republican Ken Cockayne “Mad Dog” and he loved it.
Now they’re going to call a quieter, steadier Cockayne mayor.
Cockayne defeated Democrat Chris Wilson Tuesday after a low-key race to claim the city’s top job for the next two years.
Based on unofficial results, Cockayne won by a 52-48 margin in an election that drew more than 33 percent of registered voters to the polls, the most for a municipal race since 2007.
“Bristol’s in good hands,” said outgoing Democratic Mayor Art Ward, who opted to step down after three terms. Click here for mayoral race story/
Term limits approved.
