Few Challenges In This Year’s Local Election Races

November 7, 2017

There were few challenges in this year’s local elections.

Most county row officers ran unopposed.  Even when there was competition, it was usually a case in which there were enough seats for all of the candidates to fill.

Venango County judges Oliver Lobaugh and Robert Boyer won retention to the bench.  Venango County District Attorney Shawn White, Sheriff Eric Foy, Coroner Christina Rugh and register-recorder Susan Hannon all were unchallenged.  So were Franklin Mayor Doug Baker, District Magisterial Judge Patrick Lowery, Oil City Treasurer Joseph Womer and Oil City Controller Michael Haney.

Isaiah Dunham and Michael Poff were elected to Oil City Council, and Sam Lyons, Michael Dulaney, James Johnson and Fred Mays earned seats on Franklin City Council.

Elected to the Oil City School Board were Chris Hibbard, Diana Davis, Joseph McFadden, Fred Weaver and Mark Kerr.  The candidates chosen for four seats on the Franklin Area School Board were Major Smith, Brian Spaid, Tracey Leyda and Ron Richburg.  Cranberry voters seated Lance Mitchell, Kyle Melat, Robert Blauser and Camae Bunyak on their school board.  And, elected to the Valley Grove School Board were Melanie Anderson, Todd Carson, Nichole McGill and Joane Beach.

Possibly the closest race of the day occurred in Sandycreek Township where it appears that Jean Gibbons out-polled Sheila Borger by three votes for the position of Inspector of Elections.
