Cuyahoga County Board of Elections

Sean Malone, Carmella Williams, Kim Bixenstine and Nancy Moore have been elected to the Shaker Heights City Council. 

The four were elected from a field of six candidates that also included Geoff Lake and Jane Arnoff Logsdon.

Malone received 22 percent of votes and Williams received 21 percent. Bixenstine and Moore each received 19 percent of votes cast. All four elected candidates were endorsed by the Shaker Heights Democratic Club.

The coming four-year term, beginning next year, will be Moore’s sixth, Malone’s third and Williams’ second.

Williams expressed her excitement to continue to work with the community. “I appreciate the voters of Shaker giving me another opportunity to serve on council, and I look forward to working with the residents of Shaker Heights,” she said.
