Croker Leads Bloomfield Township Supervisor Vote Count

In an interview Friday, Crawford County Commissioner John Christopher Soff told UC Today that Bloomfield Township residents will have to wait for all primary election mail-in ballots to be counted and write-in votes to be adjudicated to learn the final results of the contest for Township Supervisor.  There were no candidates on either ballot, however, Bill Croker leads both write-in vote counts with 67 out of 75 on the Republican side and 23 out of 26 on the Democratic side.  According to Soff, the minimum number of write-in votes needed in the PA primary for township supervisor is 10, meaning Croker will appear on both tickets in the general election unless there is a lead change due to mail-in ballots. The winner in November will replace outgoing supervisor Dan Gourley whose 6 year term ends at the end of the year.
In the contest for Bloomfield Township Auditor six-year term Barbara Gago was uncontested and won the Democratic vote with 54 out of 54.  There is currently no clear winner on the Republican side or in the four-year Auditor contest.
