Four appear to lock up positions on Norwin School Board
Four candidates all but sealed a position on the Norwin School board during Tuesday's primary election.
Ten cross-filed candidates ran for nominations to fill four seats on the nine-person board, and newcomer Al Lynn, and incumbents Barbara Viola, Don Rhodes and Becky Gediminskas received the top nods from the Democratic and Republican parties.
Lynn, 64, of North Huntingdon, was the top vote-getter, receiving 1,307 Democratic votes, and 872 Republican votes, according to unofficial results. He has never held an elected position.
Viola, 56, received 752 Republican votes and 1,136 Democratic votes, to earn a nomination to run for her second term on the board, followed by Rhodes, who got 892 Democratic and 707 Republican votes.
Gediminskas, 56, got 583 Republican and 992 Democratic votes, earning the right to run for her fourth term on the board.
