Andrea Blustein’s eight-year run as a Smyrna city council member is set to end after she was defeated by an extremely narrow margin by challenger Austin Wagner.

Blustein has represented Smyrna’s Ward 2 since 2012, but her term will be over New Year’s Day after losing by exactly two votes — 341 to 339 — to her challenger. The percentages for each candidate were 50.15% for Wagner and 49.85% for Blustein.

During the campaign, Wagner pledged to bring a “fresh, new perspective” to the city council. A father of two and political consultant, Wagner said he would support sustainable development and expanded transit in Smyrna. His term will run from Jan. 1, 2020 through Dec. 31, 2023.
