Unlike 1973, when the April Coalition self-destructed, there was relatively little internal bickering. Campaign spending was also limited for the first and only time.
Ying Kelley went on to almost defeat Warren Widener for Mayor. Ying remained on the Council.
Loni Hancock and John Denton finished first and second for City Council, a very strong showing. There would now be three BCA Councilmembers, still short of a 5-vote majority. And Florence McDonald was elected Auditor.
April 1975 was essentially a tie, but BCA people felt that we had recovered from the 1973 defeat, and once again, the future belonged to us.
