Hall said economic factors likely influenced voters in his district.
"I think the community's concerned about the economic conditions in the community today. Everybody's a little pessimistic about what might be coming at us and wants to make sure that we're very prudent in how we spend our money, and that was the message that I delivered," Hall said. "I'm a moderate, but I tend probably toward the conservative side. I survived in business 37 years, and you can't do that without tending to be conservative when you see economic times get a little difficult."
Debbie Ossiander, the incumbent Assembly member from the Chugiak/Eagle River district, retained her seat with a commanding lead over her opponents -- Josh Roberts and Joelle Brown -- with about 69 percent of the vote. Ossiander is running for her third and final consecutive three-year term allowed under Anchorage's charter.
In the race for South Anchorage's Assembly seat, incumbent Jennifer Johnston was re-elected for her second term, leading opponent Keli Booher with a 64 percent majority.
In East Anchorage, former mayoral candidate Paul Honeman, a past spokesperson for the Anchorage Police Department, defeated conservative candidate Adam Trombley. With all precincts reported, Honeman came out ahead with about 52 percent of the vote to Trombley's 44 percent.
Honeman, who has consistently touted his non-partisan political stance, will replace the liberal-leaning Sheila Selkregg, who decided not to run for re-election after serving one term.
In Midtown Anchorage, long-time former Assembly member Dick Traini appeared to win over conservative candidate Andy Clary.
The race between Clary and Traini was tight. At one point in the night, just 23 votes separated the two, but as more results came in, Traini widened his lead. With all precincts counted, Traini led with 48.65 percent to Clary's 44.35 percent. Just 248 votes separated the two at the end of the night, and absentee ballots, which were not counted Tuesday night, could change the outcome.
The winner of that race replaces Dan Coffey, who is finishing up two terms on the Assembly.
As for how the results would affect a majority on the Assembly, Mayor Dan Sullivan seemed to like that the Assembly might be swinging back towards the conservative side.
"If you have a majority on certain issues, you can certainly move your programs forward," he said. "We have some good ideas, I think, for the next few years. And we're hopeful that the Assembly with a majority that might think those are good ideas, will allow the city to progress and get past these budget woes, and actually do some good things for the city."
Don Smith was elected to school board Seat A with 40 percent of the vote.
Jeannie Mackie won the race for Seat B with about 54 percent.
Voters also decided several ballot propositions:
Proposition 1 is a roads and storm drainage bond worth more than $37 million, providing upgrades and renovations to various roads around town. The bond's support waned as the night went on, with a 51-49 split in favor of passage, but absentee ballots could sway the results.
Proposition 2 found another 51-49 split vote. If the "yes" votes stand, it would provide an ambulance for the Sand Lake area for $250,000, plus an annual $800,000 to fund positions to run it.
Proposition 3 passed with 56 percent of voters saying "yes." It would bond more than $1 million to replace 2 aging Fire Department engines to serve the downtown area and the Anchorage Hillside.
Proposition 4 was the only one denied. It would have provided nearly $1 million for public transportation vehicle purchases, facility improvements and other costs. Results showed that 52 percent had voted no and 48 percent yes.
Voters also decided on a land swap, exchanging 2.77 acres of municipal land for 2.73 acres of private land, which would expand Sisterhood Park. That proposition had the most support; 63 percent voted in favor and 37 percent against.
Sullivan said the bond package was very low compared to other years.
"I think people speak with their pocketbooks, and we are still in a recessionary period and we put forth bond proposals that are fairly modest," he said.
"I think the voters will end up, certainly, supporting the road bonds, we hope, because that keeps the city streets maintained and adds connections that we need, so again, I think people are being a little cautious right now. It's still tough times," he said, before the final results were in.
