It looks like Republican Councilman Frank Rizzo, who has served for 16 years, will not be re-elected this year. With 77 percent of precincts reporting, Rizzo was in 7th place in the GOP at-large field. Only five candidates advance to the general.

"To sum it up it's been a great honor for me to serve the people of Philadephia. These are the results," Rizzo said just moments ago.

Rizzo is one of several Council members who took heat for participation in the controversial retirement DROP program. If he had been re-elected he would have had to "retire" for a day to collect DROP before returning to serve again.

"I think the negativity of the DROP issue is certainly a factor," Rizzo said. "We have some good candidates here. I think that the city will be in good hands and I will stay involved."
