Louder, Yerger, deLeon Winners in Township Council Race

According to unofficial election results posted online by WFMZ-TV Channel 69 News Tuesday night, with all eight precincts reporting their vote totals the three winners in a hotly-contested, six-way race for three open seats on Lower Saucon Township are Republican challenger Donna Louder with 1,237 votes, Republican challenger and former township councilwoman Sandra Yerger with 1,162 votes, and Democratic incumbent Priscilla deLeon with 1,148 votes. DeLeon, who has served on council for 28 years, is holding on to her council seat by a razor-thin margin of just seven votes which separate her from the fourth-place finisher in the race–Republican incumbent and current council vice president Tom Maxfield–who has received 1,141 votes, according to the news station’s unofficial results. The fifth and sixth place finishers are David Willard (D-I), with 1,061 votes, and Gary Gorman (D), with 769 votes, according to the news channel. The unofficial results posted on Northampton County’s Elections website were lagging behind those posted by the television news station all evening, with just 50 percent of precincts’ vote totals reported as of 11 p.m.

By 11:30 p.m., however, the county was reporting vote totals from 100 percent of precincts with a slight difference in the numbers reported by WFMZ–but the same results. According to the county’s results, Louder received 1,244 votes (18.89 percent), Yerger received 1,176 votes (17.86 percent), deLeon received 1,157 votes (17.57 percent), Maxfield received 1,154 votes (17.52 percent), Willard received 1,069 votes (16.23 percent) and Gorman received 775 votes (11.77 percent), with 10 votes (.15 percent) cast for write-in candidates.
