'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Steve Romac, a Democrat, defeated Republican incumbent James Giel by a tally of 1,268 to 1,098 for the seat as Shaler Area School Board director, Region 3.

Giel, who came into the election with 16 years of service as a school board member and 11 years as board president, was defeated by the Democratic challenger.

In other Shaler-related elections, Republican incumbent Lori Mizgorski, 46, defeated Democratic challenger Jim Tunstall, 37, by a vote of 428 to 375 for Shaler Commissioner Ward 2. This will be Mizgorski's second four-year term. In the race for Shaler Commissioner Ward 4, longtime Democratic incumbent Thomas McElhone, 69, defeated Republican challenger Leah Kurz, 33, with an election total of 454 to 353. This will be McElhone's seventh four-year term serving in Ward 4.

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.

Here are the election results in the contested races for the municipalities of Hampton, Shaler, O'Hara, Indiana and Richland as well as for the school board director at Shaler Area.
