CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Chattanooga's final city council seat has been decided in a runoff election between incumbent Councilman Jack Benson and challenger Larry Grohn.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported the 65-year-old Grohn won the District 4 seat in balloting Tuesday, garnering 1,077 votes to 692 votes cast for Benson, who served for a dozen years.
The two received the most votes on March 5 in a five-candidate race, but neither had the required 50 percent plus one vote required to win the seat outright.
Grohn and the eight other members of the Chattanooga City Council will be sworn in on Monday.
Flagging does not guarantee removal.
