State College mayor re-elected
By: WJAC Web Staff
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. --
State College Mayor Elizabeth Goreham will retain her seat after Tuesday's victory over Republican Ron Madrid.
Goreham won easily, with 62 percent of the vote. She drew national attention earlier this year when she vowed to marry any same-sex couple that came to her with a valid marriage license. She backed off that promise later, though she did allow a gay marriage to take place in her home.
As of noon Tuesday, the outcome of another mayoral race in Centre County were still unknown.
Port Matilda's race attracted much attention because incumbent Robert Wiser asked voters to not re-elect him.
Wiser served one four-year term and did not want to serve another, but he was the only name on the ballot so he asked voters to write in anyone else.
Wiser received 29 votes and write-ins totaled 81 votes, but it is still not known if any one candidate got more than 29 votes.
