It was an easy primary win for incumbent Sharpsburg Mayor Richard Panza, who received 366 votes, compared to challenger Karen Iezzi's 81 last week to secure the Democratic nomination for the November election, according to unofficial results from the Allegheny County Elections Division.

There were seven write-in votes.

No Republicans were on the primary ballot.

Barring a strong write-in in the general election, Panza will sail into his second term. Panza, 76, previously served on council.

Iezzi, who is a familiar face in the community after having owned Krazy Karen's along Main Street, was making her first bid for political office.
