Although incumbent Saxonburg Mayor Jody Pflueger ran unopposed on the Democratic ballot in Tuesday's election, it's unclear if she won the nomination.

According to unofficial results, Pflueger is the apparent winner with 44 votes.

But according to the Butler County Election Department website, 47 Democratic write-in votes were cast in the race.

The final result will not be available until the county Board of Elections certifies the results, probably in June.

“I defer any comment because I haven't seen the vote,” Pflueger said. “Until I know what that means, I don't want to comment.”

On the Republican side, Saxonburg Councilwoman Pam Bauman handily won the nomination, according to unofficial returns.

She received 117 votes on the Republican ballot. Her opponent, former Mayor Brian Antoszyk, received 73.

Bauman, a councilwoman since 2011, said it was an emotional night.

“I am in shock,” she said. “I'm honored, proud, thrilled — everything you can think of.”

Antoszyk, who served as Saxonburg's mayor for 12 years until 2009, did not return calls seeking comment.
