SOUTH PORTLAND – Tom Blake and Alan Livingston won seats on the South Portland City Council on Tuesday, while Richard Carter and Sara Goldberg won election to the school board.

In a four-way race for two at-large seats on the City Council, incumbent Blake was by far the top vote getter, with 6,140 votes. Alan Livingston, a District Five representative on the South Portland Board of Education, took second place, capturing 3,858 votes, and edging out challengers Albert DiMillo Jr., a vocal critic of the South Portland High School renovation plan, and former Planning Board member Don Russell. DiMillo received 3,511 votes and Russell received 3,190 votes.

In two uncontested Board of Education races, District 1 representative Carter and District 2 representative Goldberg each easily earned another term on the board, by getting 8,460 votes and 8,377 votes respectively.

There were no candidates for an open school board seat to represent District Three, although Richard Matthews ran a write-in campaign. The City Clerk staff was tallying the 913 write-in ballots in that election on Tuesday morning.
