ELECTION 2013: Molitierno, Calabrese join incumbents on Penn Hills school board

Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2013, 10:24 p.m.

Newcomers Linda Molitierno and Pauline Calabrese will join incumbents Robert Hudak and Jennifer Burgess-Johnson on the Penn Hills School District Board of Directors.

Candidate William Phifer was the odd man out with all 50 precincts reporting around 11:40 p.m.; the top four vote-getters secured seats on the school board.

Molitierno and Calabrese had a strong showing, combining for more than 43 percent of the overall vote. Hudak and Burgess-Johnson had 23 percent and 19 percent, respectively.

“I'm very proud and I'm humbled that the people of Penn Hills have elected me to serve, and that's exactly what I will do,” said Burgess-Johnson, who was appointed to fill the board seat vacated by Linda Gallo in 2012. “I'm looking forward to representing Penn Hills on the state and national level in the appointed positions I serve in currently, and I'm looking forward to working with my fellow board members and pushing for change in our district.”

In total, 5,064 votes were cast at the 50 precincts in Penn Hills.

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