Absentee Ballots May Have Changed Nazareth Council Race
According to the Express-Times, incumbent Larry Stoudt has come from behind to keep his Nazareth Borough Council seat; however, the Northampton County Election Office would not confirm or deny this report.
According to an Election Office official, results will remain unofficial until next week, and some absentee ballots have yet to be certified -- which is why the Ward 2 results on Northampton County's website still have Heckman as the winner with 112 votes. Stoudt unofficially came in with 110 votes.
Newcomer Carl Fischl, a high school teacher and lifelong Nazareth resident, received 210 votes -- unofficially -- and will take one of the two four-year seats on council.
