Robert Mazza, running as a Republican primary write-in candidate for North East Township Supervisor, won the three way race receiving 182 votes from the 363 total Republican write-ins. The only official number reported by Erie County is the first place finisher. Mazza will face Democrat Godfried “Fritz” Holzhausen in the November general election.
The write in campaigns generated quite a bit of interest in the township for an otherwise low key election. Supervisor Vernon Frye did not run for reelection, creating the open position.
Congratulations to the winning candidates.
