BROMLEY, Ky. — It was a nail-biter election to the very last as Bromley's city council race came down to a single vote.

According to final, unofficial Kenton County election results released Tuesday, incumbent Dianne Wartman lost her seat after garnering 150 votes.

Reagan France and current councilwoman Gail Smith tied at 151 votes, and each will serve a two-year term on the six-person council.

Mike Kendall took the most votes (174), followed by Tim Wartman (166), Nancy Kienker (162) and David Radford (153). All four will continue to serve on council.

Bromley Mayor Mike Denham, who was not up for election in 2020, told WCPO it was the closest race the river city of roughly 800 people had seen in recent memory.

Kenton County Clerk Gabrielle Summe told WCPO the county still had some mail-in ballots to count after election night, with an added delay to allow time for ballot curing.
