Grove City General Election 2005
Hurry up and wait...
Voting went very well! Many thanks to those who came out and voted for me. The rain stayed away for most of the day and nearly 300 residents of Ward 5 came out to fill in the ovals.
Unfortunately, the results won't be available for up to a week. The Elections Office has to sort through the 22,000+ ballots by hand to manually count the write-in votes throughout the county. I'm sure it isn't a fun job, but I am thankful for their efforts!
Congratulations to the Republican winners in Grove City!
- Jeff Black won his first general election and will retain his Ward 5 seat on council.
- Council President George Pokrant won re-election in Ward 1.
- Andrea Folkertsma won a seat on the council, representing Ward 2.
- Randy Riddle won election to remain mayor.
- In the only true race in the borough, Matt Fischer easily won the job of tax collector.
