Former Shoreline City Councilman Bob Ransom held his lead over incumbent Ronald Wastewater District Commissioner Arne Lind in new returns from the Nov. 8 general election.

Ransom led in updated returns Wednesday with 51 percent of the vote to 48.5 percent for Lind.

Ransom had 6,949 votes in the Shoreline portion of the District to 6,603 for Lind.

Of the 17,957 Shoreline-area ballots, 4,344 left the position blank and 61 had write-in votes.

Ransom got one vote in the tiny Snohomish County portion of the District with the other five voters leaving the position blank.

Officials in both King and Snohomish counties plan to release another updated count Monday and to certify results Tuesday.

Lind was seeking a third six-year term on the three-member board.

Ransom was a Shoreline City Council member from 1995 to 2007, the last two years as mayor. He lost a re-election bid to Councilman Terry Scott in 2007.

He was a member of the Shoreline School Board from 1983 to 1991.

Ransom ran as a Republican candidate for State representative in 2002, losing to Democrat Maralyn Chase by a 56 percent to 44 percent margin.
