Michael Pepe has won his bid for Montgomery County district 7 legislator, according to unofficial results from the Montgomery County Board of Elections. With 850 votes, the Republican candidate prevailed in a three-way race with incumbent and independent candidate Barbara Wheeler with 86 votes, and Democratic candidate Jeff Stark with 523 votes. In other Amsterdam area races, Joseph Isabel and Robert Purtell, incumbent candidates for districts 8 and 9 respectively, have each won their bids for second terms.
The district 3 race remains too close to call, with John Thayer showing a slight edge with 950 votes to Roy S. Dimond’s 938 votes at the polls, however there are still 190 absentee ballots in that district that will not be counted until November 15.
In the race for Montgomery County district attorney, Republican candidate Kelli P. McCoski defeated Democratic candidate Howard M. Aison 9,836 to 6,552.
