Stephen Lytle tops Nicholas Glover to face John Dingfelder in Tampa council runoff

The battle for second place was close enough to require a machine recount that verified the earlier results, according to the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Office.

A recount Friday left the outcome the same in the District 3 Tampa City Council race, with Stephen Lytle defeating Nicholas Glover for the right to face top vote-getter John Dingfelder in an April 23 runoff.

Dingfelder, a former member of the City Council, clinched 49 percent of the vote in a four-way race to replace term-limited council member Yvonne Yolie Capin, not enough to avoid a runoff election.

The battle for second place was close enough to require a machine recount that verified the earlier results, according to the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Office. Lytle, 36, a corporate human relations manager Stephen Lytle, finished with 20.26 percent of the vote; Glover, 36, a Gas South marketing manager, received 19.74 percent; and real estate agent Vibha Shevade, 38, received 11.04 percent.

Among the seven City Council seats that were up for election Tuesday, a second runoff is required in District 1 and a recount is necessary there, too, to determine the second place finisher.

Results from a manual are scheduled to be announced later today to determine whether Walter Smith II or Alan Clendinen will face top District 1 vote-getter Joseph Citro.
