Republicans chose Loughry, Bozic, Bollas to face Dems for City Council at-large
Republican voters in Tallmadge have chosen their top three candidates to go up against Democrats for three at-large City Council seats in the Nov. 2 general election.
According to final but unofficial results from the Summit County Board of Elections, the winners are current Councilman At-large Dennis Loughry with 677 votes, former Tallmadge Parks and Recreation Assistant Superintendent Adam Bozic with 556 votes and current Ward 3 Councilman Jonathon Bollas with 454 votes.
Community member Rita Detorakis received the least amount of votes, 267, and will not advance to the general election.
The three at-large seats are each for a four-year term starting Jan. 1, 2022.
“Thank you to all my supporters. I look forward to continuing my campaign this summer. Stay tuned; more to come," Bollas said after the election results came in.
Bozic said that he looks forward to working with Loughry and Bollas. "When November rolls around our citizens will be ready to cast votes for a better way, a better Tallmadge."
There was no Democratic primary because only three candidates filed. Current Councilman At-large James Donovan, current appointed Councilman At-large Christopher Grimm and current Ward 4 Councilwoman and Council President Carol Siciliano-Kilway will automatically appear on the ballot.
