Challenger wins close O'Hara election

Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013, 11:57 a.m.
 

O'Hara newcomer Cassie Eccles won a four-year position on council by a narrow margin Tuesday night, according to unofficial results from the Allegheny County Department of Elections.

With two of two precincts reporting, Eccles, a Democrat, earned 173 votes to beat Republican Alan Templin, who earned 166 votes.

“It was so, so close,” said Eccles, who said it is her time to give back to the community she's called home for 20 years.

Other races for O'Hara Council were uncontested. The winners are Chuck Vogel in Ward 1, Mark Rothert in Ward 2, Scott Frankowski in Ward 3 and Allison Garcia in Ward 4.
