Retired United States Marine Corps Colonel Lee Busby has won the special election for Tuscaloosa City Council District 4. Unofficial results show the 62-year-old Busby defeated challengers Frank Fleming and John Earl to take the seat left vacant after former Councilman Matt Calderone stepped down in in July.

Results, which again are unofficial are as follows:

Lee Busby: 207

Frank Fleming: 112

John Earl: 18

Busby, a Tuscaloosa native and University of Alabama alumni, was Vice Chief of Staff to General John F Kelly. He is also an accomplished sculptor and ceramics artist. His work has been shown locally in the Kentuck Museum Gallery.

District 4 includes downtown Tuscaloosa and a large portion of the University of Alabama campus. Approximately 6800 registered voters live in the district.

Official results from the special election will be announced at the Tuscaloosa City Council meeting on Oct. 15, when Busby will be sworn in.
