Zack Reed takes big lead in Ward 2

Looks like Zack Reed adjusted to his new ward just fine. The outspoken, ultra-social maverick councilman cruised to a big win in Ward 2. He got 1,343 votes, way ahead of Charlene Laster, in second with 417 votes.

People said Reed's old ward got carved up in redistricting because he criticized council president Martin Sweeney so often. But that didn't stop Reed. (Nor did it stop Brian Cummins, but I'll save that for another post.) He campaigned hard, and his experience lifted him past a field that failed to make much of a case against him. He'll have to beat Laster in November, but tonight's results suggest that won't be hard for him.
