Four contested races in the area will be decided when polls open for the Nov. 5 election.

• In Bridgeville, incumbent Mayor Donald Dolde, a Democrat, is being challenged by Republican Pasquale DeBlasio. Dolde has been Bridgeville's mayor since 1990.

Eight candidates are vying for four spots on borough council, including incumbents Bill Colussy (R), Joseph Colosimo Jr. (D), Bruce Ghelarducci (R) and Mary Weise (D). The four challengers are Neil Lyons (R), Eric Schmidt (R), Bill Henderson (D) and Mark Berton (D).

• Both area school board races – Chartiers Valley and South Fayette – are uncontested.

Chartiers Valley public relations coordinator Chuck McCartney said it is an unusual situation for the district.

“That is not the norm,” he said. “I'm sure it has happened in the past where the board spots have been uncontested, but usually there are several more candidates than positions.”

• In Collier, five candidates are on the ballot for three open seats on the board of commissioners – none of them incumbents: Wayne Chiurazzi (R/D), Nichole Kauer (D), Jason Oskamp (R), Chuck Hackett (R) and Mary Ann Cupples-Wisniowski.

Collier Manager Sal Sirabella said he is pleased with the number of candidates running in the township.

Commission President Bob Schuler is not seeking re-election. He is, however, running for tax collector.

• In Scott, only one ward is contested – Ward 2, where incumbent Democrat William Wells is being challenged by Republican Herb Ohliger.

The rest of the open township seats are: Ward 4, David Calabria (D); Ward 6, David Jason (R); Ward 8, Pat Caruso (D); and Ward 9, Donald Giudici (D).

• In South Fayette Township, two candidates are up for one open seat on the board of commissioners: Marsha McFalls (D) and Jessica Cardillo (R).
