Leona Plaugh defeated former Richland County Council member Tony Mizzell in the runoff for District 4 Columbia City Council seat.

Plaugh, a former Columbia city manager, received just over 52 percent of the vote. Mizzell received 47 percent of the vote. The contest was to replace Kirkman Finlay who gave up his seat to run for mayor.

District 4 includes some of the more affluent and conservative precincts and it includes Fort Jackson and Heathwood, Garner's Ferry, and Hampton neighborhoods.

Plaugh will be District 4's first non-Republican representative.
