NEWTON — A pair of long-standing city councilors vying to become Newton’s next mayor pulled ahead in a seven-way preliminary contest on Tuesday.
City councilors Scott F. Lennon and Ruthanne Schwartz Fuller will face each other on the Nov. 7 ballot, when voters will decide on a replacement for Mayor Setti Warren, who is not seeking a third term.
Fuller came in first in Tuesday’s voting with 5,234 ballots, or about 37 percent of the vote, according to unofficial results released Tuesday night. Lennon was second with 4,690 votes — about 33 percent of the ballots cast.
Amy Mah Sangiolo, a Ward 4 councilor-at-large, came in third place with 3,503 votes.
The remaining candidates were Al Cecchinelli, who had 610 votes; Eli Katzoff, with 162 votes; Richard Saunders, with 45; and Geoffrey Woodward, with 28 votes, according to city results.
David Olson, Newton’s city clerk, said he expected voter turnout on Tuesday to be about 15 to 18 percent of the city’s voters. A total of 14,280 votes were cast Tuesday.
Whoever wins in November will take over for Warren, a Democrat, as he steps aside for a run for governor.
