Benwood Councilman Left Off Ballot Declared Winner


  A Benwood councilman whose name was left off the ballot has won his re-election bid.

The City Council unanimously voted Monday to declare Curtis Mele the winner in the May 13 municipal election.

Mele had contested the election after another councilman was mistakenly listed as the candidate in his district. He was unopposed in his bid for a third term.

Mele says he's happy to put the matter behind him.
