SOUTH PORTLAND — Kate Lewis has won the city council District 2 seat, defeating Christopher Breen, 4,830 votes to 1,380 in Tuesday’s election. She will replace Mayor Patti Smith, who was not eligible to run because of term limits.

Two other city council races were on the ballot but were uncontested. Claude Morgan will retain his District 1 seat with 5,255 votes while District 5 candidate Adrian Dowling will join the council with 5,137 votes. He will replace Brad Fox who did not run.
