Election Results: 2011 Republican Primary Luzerne County Council
The top 11 (outlined in green) will be on the general election ballot as Republicans.
The data above was drawn from http://www.luzernecounty.org/county/departments_agencies/bureau_of_elections.
This will be a relief to Kathy Dobash, who in the 2010 primary got enough votes to make the state committee but did not ascend to the position due to a stipulation of rules that the number of male members equal number of females--and unfortunately for her she was replaced with a male who got fewer votes than she did.
Both union-endorsed candidates, Cabell and Morelli, were elected.
Stephen J. Urban proved to be popular. He is the son of Stephen A. Urban.
Bill James' past runs for county commissioner may have helped him.
