In the Murrysville council race, it appears that newcomer Loren Kase, 31, will join three incumbents on the general election ballot in November.

Kase edged out another challenger, Theresa Gildemeister, 41, by just six votes for the fourth nomination on the Republican ballot, according to unofficial election results. No Democrats sought that nomination.

“It's a crew that has to work together,” Kase said. “I'm looking forward to getting in closer touch with everyone that's been elected in.”

With all seven precincts reporting, Kase received 17.30 percent of the votes, while Gildemesiter received 17.17 percent. The other three nominations were claimed by incumbents Dave Perry, 52, who received 23 percent of the vote; Jeff Kepler, 43, with 22 percent, and Joan Kearns, 71, who received 20 percent.
