Key numbers in Indiana County helped Smith win

April 25, 2012

BROOKVILLE — Updated — yet still unofficial — totals from Tuesday’s primary election show an even narrower margin in the 66th District race between incumbent Sam Smith and challenger Cris Dush in Jefferson County, but at the end of the day, it was other precincts in the district that carried Smith to his ultimate victory.

No talk of recount in 66th race

April 25, 2012

BROOKVILLE — After absentee ballots were counted Tuesday night at Jefferson Place, it brought the race for the 66th District seat in the state House of Representatives even closer.

Unofficial results show that Cris Dush collected 2,459 votes (46 percent) over Sam Smith’s 2,388 votes (45 percent), a difference of only 71 votes.

A second challenger for Smith, Dr. James M. Brown, collected 441 votes (8 percent).

Seven absentee ballots couldn’t be counted because of mistakes with ballots.

NEW SIGNALS

The end is in sight, as workers from Power Contracting test and activate the new $1.1 million traffic light system on Mahoning Street in downtown Punxsutawney Wednesday and today. In addition to activating the new signals at the four intersections, the video cameras had to be lined up properly in order to identify when traffic is waiting at the intersection for the signal to change. The old traffic signal poles will be removed and sidewalk rehabilitation and reseeding between Jefferson Street and Hampton Avenue will occur where those poles once stood. (Photo by Larry McGuire)
