A few Cleveland Heights races were certain.
Cleveland Heights-University Heights School Board incumbents Eric Coble and Nancy Peppler ran unopposed, so their victory was guaranteed.
Cleveland Heights Municipal Court Judge A. Deane Buchanan also had no challengers in this year's race.
But the Cleveland Heights City Council race was close — only nine votes separate the second- and third-place winners, according to unofficial, final results from the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections. Challenger Jeff Coryell fell to fourth place by only 54 votes. Incumbent Phyllis Evans and challenger Mary Dunbar barely pulled ahead of him, while Dennis Wilcox held steady in first-place throughout the night. A recount is likely, and a spokesman from the Board of Elections said information would be available soon.
And the CH-UH School District 6.9-mill levy passed by 2,500 votes in a tough economy when approval isn't a given.
