Tight Tigard City Council race shows incumbent leading

The race for Tigard City Council is close.

Very close.

Initial results released at 8 p.m. showed that three of the four candidates were neck and neck (and neck) to secure two open seats on the council.

Those numbers haven't changed much since more updated results came out at 9 p.m.

In Tigard, the top two candidates with the most votes will take the two open positions.

Incumbent Marc Woodard, who was seeking his second term, is leading with 34 percent of the vote.

Challengers John Goodhouse and Tom Anderson are within a few hundred votes of one another.

Goodhouse, who has run unsuccessful campaigns for City Council, Tigard-Tualatin School Board and the Oregon Legislature in the last four years, was leading with 26 percent of the vote.

Anderson, a longtime member of the city’s Planning Commission secured 24 percent.

Carl Switzer, who previously served as parks manager for the city of Tualatin, trailed in fourth place with 14 percent of the vote.

New updated results will be posted at 10 p.m.
