After the initial numbers were released Tuesday, Quinn-Davidson, without using the word win, gave a speech thanking supporters, saying she couldn't have done it without volunteers and campaign donations. She also congratulated the other candidates on running a great race. 

Quinn-Davidson says she's eager to get to work. 

Among those in attendance at Quinn-Davidson's watch party were Mayor Ethan Berkowitz, Assemblyman Chris Constant and Assemblyman Forrest Dunbar. 


The election results will be certified on August 17.
