Long-time Bridgeville Mayor Donald Dolde was unseated in Tuesday's general election.

Dolde, 74, a Democrat who was first elected in 1990 and served six terms, lost the seat to Republican challenger Pasquale DeBlasio.

With all precincts reporting, DeBlasio received about 53 percent of the vote to Dolde's 46 percent, unofficial results showed.

Incumbents William Colussy and Bruce Ghelarducci, Sr., both Republicans, were re-elected to the seven-member council. Republicans Neil Lyons and Eric Schmidt unseated council members Joseph Colosimo Jr. and Mary Weise, both Democrats.

No incumbents were on the ballot in Collier Township.

Elected to the three open commissioner seats are Wayne Chiurazzi, who was crossfiled, Republican Jason Oskamp and Democrat Nichole Kauer.

Current commission President Bob Schuler did not run for re-election, but was elected township tax collector.

All results are unofficial until certified by the Allegheny County Board of Elections.
