Democratic incumbent Tracy Grossman lost her re-election bid, facing defeat at the hands of Republican challenger Louis Cartabona by 12 votes.

Cartabona, the second-place finisher in a race for one of two council seats, beat Grossman 533-521. The Democrat led by two votes before provisional ballots were added to the count.

Republican Robert Melick placed in first with 816 votes. Democrats only ran one candidate in Alpha.

GOP incumbent Peter Petinelli did not run for re-election. The Republican victories give them complete control over Alpha’s council.
