GALVESTON, Texas--Retired businessman Lewis Rosen apparently will face incumbent Joe Jaworski in a runoff election for the mayor s seat next month.

A June 16 runoff election is pending the count of provisional ballots. According to complete but unofficial results released close to 2 a.m. because of delays caused by county equipment problems, Rosen picked up 2,812 votes, while Jaworski had 2,471.

Of the total 6,268 votes cast, Galveston school board member Beau Rawlins had 721, and Greg Roof, a professor of economics at Alvin Community College, had 264.
