Blackhawk School Board headed toward change in general election

17 Mai 2017

Coatesville Area School District Region 3: incumbent Laurie C. Knecht received 139 votes; Bob Knecht received 518 votes; Amelia Mills received 176 votes; incumbent Brenda L. Geist received 208 votes; and Rob Fisher received 568 votes.

Incumbent Charles "Bud" Graham got 442 votes on the Republican side, with first-time candidate Matthew Auman picking up 332.

District Attorney Christine E. Holman, a Ryan Township Republican seeking her second four-year term, garnered 8,024 votes.

The same can't be said for the other judge races in the county.

In Downingtown, for a four-year term on Downingtown School Board, Region 4, Democrat Rodney Simon II cross-filed and received 23 Democratic votes and 163 Republican votes.

Three incumbent candidates - Denise Thomas, Ned Evans and Joe Caffrey - cross-filed and won Republican and Democratic nominations.

Meanwhile, all four magisterial district judges seeking re-election this year will appear on both the Republican and Democratic ballots in the November 7 General Election, barring successful write-in or third-party campaigns, as each cross-filed and won renomination from both parties.

While Eggleston, Come, and O'Neill are cross-filed, Roeder was strictly filed as a Republican. Challenger Bryan Ruth only received 203 and 350 votes, respectively. There were no Democrats seeking nominations, so those five will also run unopposed in November.

Nigel Farage has accused Jean-Claude Juncker of attempting to "bully the Brits" over Brexit negotiations. The Dutch didn't want a "Nexit".

In the race for Region 1 of the Avon Grove School Board, where the issue of building a new high school is strong, four candidates jumped in and cross-filed for two open seats.

Most of the contested magisterial district judge races across Cumberland County Tuesday were narrowed down to a single candidate being listed on the ballot this November.

Should these votes carry over into the general election, the school board would be welcoming the new faces of Eggleston, Come, and Roeder, as well as incumbents O'Neill and Cressman.

Bratlee, the board's current president, received 13.82 percent of the Republican vote.

Swank and McGovern are incumbents. Republican Tracey Deal was unopposed for the two-year term for the seat to which she was appointed last year.

All results are unofficial until confirmed by the Luzerne County board of elections. That sets up a November battle between the two for a six year seat on the school board.

According to unofficial returns with all 13 precincts reporting, the leading vote-getters on both the Republican and Democratic lines in Tuesday's primary were Carmen Bolin, John Marianacci, Nick DeAngelo and Kimberly Prebola Yochem. Hawk received 10 votes in Tuesday's balloting.

All results are unofficial until confirmed by the board of elections.
