SOUTH PORTLAND — Incumbent Thomas Blake and Alan Livingston were elected in a four-man race for two at-large City Council seats.

Blake, a retired city firefighter, who won 6,140 votes, said during the campaign that local government must do more with fewer resources.

Livingston, a board of education member who won 3,858 votes, said he can serve as a bridge between the City Council and the board.

Political newcomer Albert DiMillo Jr., a certified public accountant, won 3,511 votes. He said he decided to run because of his opposition to a  $41.5 million borrowing proposal to renovate South Portland High School, which also was on the ballot.

Political newcomer Donald Russell III, owner of BrandME Marketing, won 3,190 votes. He said the most important issues for the city are education and downtown development.
