Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan won a second, four-year term. He easily defeated Republican and area businessman Josh Sines.

“I look forward to working with other elected leaders and continuing to listen to citizens to increase opportunity and overcome our challenges, together. Even now, we are starting to see the results of our efforts. I am confident that, during the next four years, we will continue to build momentum for an even stronger, safer Akron,” Horrigan said in a news release.

In Cuyahoga County, residents passed Issue 6, which is a charter amendment that gives the sheriff more authority and staggers the term of the appointed sheriff to span administrations. A tax renewal and increase for Cuyahoga Community College also passed.

Voters rejected a tax levy in the Willoughby-Eastlake City School District, 53 percent against and 46 percent in favor with all precincts reporting.
