    Voting came to a close in Philadelphia at 8:00 Tuesday night, and the city council spots have all been tallied. Most district seats were run uncontested, but the at-large field for City Council seats featured a numerous amount of candidates vying for simply seven seats.

    In the Second District, incumbent Kenyatta Johnson defeated Ori Feibush. Incumbent Maria Quinones-Sanchez held her seat in the Seventh District as well.

    The at-large race featured some close finished. Incumbents Blondell Reynolds Brown and William Greenlee have kept their seats and will join newcomers Allan Domb, Helen Gym and Derek Green on the City Council. Both Republican at-large incumbents, David Oh and Dennis O'Brien, held on to their seats as well.
