Ed Prince continues to widen his lead over Robin Jones for a vacant seat on the Renton City Council.
The trend since the counting began last Tuesday has gone in Prince's favor and with fewer and fewer votes to count, he is taking an unbeatable lead.
The count released Monday showed Prince with 7,104 votes, or 51.70 percent, to 6,585 or 47.93 percent for Jones, a difference of 519 votes.
After the initial count on election night, Nov. 8, Prince led by 128 votes.
Prince and Jones are running for the council position held by King Parker, who is retiring from the City Council.
City Council incumbents Don Persson and Greg Taylor have easily won re-election in their contested races. Council member Marcie Palmer ran unopposed, as did Mayor Denis Law for a second term.
