Mayor Elizabeth Goreham Wins Big in Re-Election Bid

With all precincts reporting, Elizabeth Goreham (D) was re-elected as Mayor of State College Tuesday night by a large margin, receiving 61.54% of the popular vote. Goreham easily defeated her Republican challenger Ron Madrid (38%) after a long campaign. Goreham received 1634 votes to Madrid’s 1019.

Running on a platform which included increasing town and gown affairs, touting local business, focusing on sustainability, and maintaining the stability of State College’s neighborhoods, Goreham expressed a clear vision for the future of State College. Goreham also stated that she is open to more conversation between students and borough residents about State Patty’s Day, but would support paying the bars to close again. But who could forget about her 2013 State Patty’s Day heroics?

In the State College Borough Council race, all three Democrats were also elected to seats. Evan Myers (27.71%), Theresa Lafer (26.79%), and incumbent Thomas Daubert (30.15%) handedly defeated retired police officer Richard Garis (15.04%).

We’ll have reaction from Mayor Goreham soon.
