With Mosby launching a mayoral bid, which he has since abandoned, 11 Democrats and a Republican hoped to capture his seat on the council. City official Leon F. Pinkett III, former Del. Shawn Z. Tarrant, City Council aide Marshall Bell and pastor Westley West were locked in a four-way race. Pinkett held a narrow lead late Tuesday and kept it as all 24 precincts reported. Pinkett, with 24 percent of the vote, edged Tarrant (22 percent), West (19 percent) and Bell (18 percent. Pinkett will face GOP nominee Tamara Purnell, who works for the city courts.
