5 running unopposed for Fox Chapel and O’Hara councils

Tawnya Panizzi

Fox Chapel and O’Hara voters won’t have a contested council race in either community during this month’s primary election, according to the Allegheny County Elections Bureau.

In O’Hara, there are two Republican candidates vying for two open seats. The terms each run four years and represent the township at-large.

• John Denny, of Woodshire Drive, was first elected to council in 2009.

• Bob Smith, of Dorseyville Road, is council president and has served 30 years.

In Fox Chapel, there are three candidates, all Republicans, competing for three seats. Each term runs four years. People running include Ann Meyer of Guyasuta Road, James Royston of Catalpa Ridge Road and Jay Troutman of Riding Trail Lane.

The primary election is May 21.

Barring a strong write-in campaign, everyone running will win their party’s nomination in May to run in the General Election in November.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
