Incumbents have won re-election in Mt. Ephraim.

Mayor Joseph Wolk and Commissioner Traz Tovinsky were re-elected Tuesday.

George Gies, a newcomer running on their slate, won the seat held by Commissioner Andrew Gilmore, who did not seek re-election.

Wolk received 502 votes, the lowest of the three incumbents.

With 535 ballots cast in his name, Tovinsky was the top vote-getter, edging out Gies by a single vote.

Their challengers came fairly close to unseating them, but the incumbents managed to hang onto their seats thanks to vote-by-mail ballots.

Michael Marrone received 445 votes, while his running mates John Kuchmek and Jerry Colonna has 434 and 383 ballots cast in their name, respectively.
