Democrat Jerramiah Healy won the election with 28% of the vote over his nearest rivals (Assemblyman Lou Manzo, 24%, and Acting Mayor L. Harvey Smith, 22%). The previous Mayor Glenn Cunningham, the first African-American Mayor died of a heart attack five months prior and L. Harvey Smith became Acting Mayor.
