UPDATE: Mayor's Race to Feature Three Candidates

Gotto, Field and Taylor to face off in November

After getting the nod to run on the county Democratic Party line William Field won the primary against challenger Cochise Doucette. He will face off against Deputy Mayor William Gotto who won the uncontested Republican primary and Elaine Taylor who filed a petition to run as an independent. 

According to unofficial results posted on the county website Field won the race with a relatively low turnout. With 576 votes he topped Doucette's 143 votes. Running unopposed, Gotto received 1,519 votes and there were 20 write-in votes in the Republican primary.

In November's election there will also be a council seat up for grabs after Councilman Juan Malave opted not to run for reelection. The Democratic Party did not submit any candidates for the race but there were 48 write in votes. In the Republican primary Edward Guz received 1520 votes and there were also five write-in votes.

The race for the Howell Board of Education also took shape on Tuesday night as six candidates filed to run for the three seats. Current Board President Tim O'Brien and incumbent Patrick Dowling will look to hold their seats. They will be running against Nancy Donio and Amy Fankhauser who had already announced their candidacy as well as Jeanne DePompo and Charles Welsh.

Suzanne Wolff received more then enough write-in votes and will be the official candidate for Township Council on the Democratic line.
