It appears there will be a three-way race for the two Region 3 seats on the Fox Chapel Area School Board this fall.

Incumbents Charles “Chip” Burke and Joel Weinstein, who each cross-filed on both the Democratic and Republican ballots, secured the Republican nominations for November, according to unofficial results from the Allegheny County Elections Division.

Burke received 319 votes and Weinstein got 220, which was enough to edge out challenger Keith Fenton, who also cross-filed. He received 217 votes. There were 28 write-in votes in the Republican primary.

Weinstein also earned a spot on the Democratic ballot, along with challenger Nancy Snider, who filed only as a Democrat.

Weinstein received 298 votes, and Snider received 284.

Burke and Fenton trailed with 270 and 163, respectively. There were three write-in votes in the Democratic primary.

This was the only primary race in the district because incumbent Sherman Snyder, who was cross-filed, was unopposed in Region 1, and incumbent Robert Mauro, who was cross-filed, was unopposed Region 2.
