As of unofficial election results released at 5 p.m. Friday, Ken Quinby and Tamie Tlustos-Arnold were winning Position 2 and 6 on Fairview City Council.

In the race for Position 2, Quinby held the lead at 49.92 percent, or 1,316 votes, ahead of Barbara Jones with 49.09 percent, or 1,294 votes. A difference of 22 votes.

Tamie Tlustos-Arnold leads for Position 6 with 49.96 percent, or 1,270 votes, ahead of Brian Cooper at 48.86 percent, or 1,242 votes. A difference of 28 votes.

A spokeman for the Multnomah County Elections Office said some ballots are yet to be counted, and he expects some of those may involve races in Fairview.

While the remaining uncounted ballots are unlikely to change the outcome of the races, it’s still too close to call. Multnomah County will release another round of revised results at 5 p.m. Tuesday.
