History was made in Jefferson County Tuesday, as it will see the first ever female coroner.
The retirement of long-time coroner Bernard Snyder led to a hotly contested race for Jefferson County coroner this year.
Republican Brenda Shumaker faced off against Democrat Tammy Stansell, ensuring that history would be made with the election of the county’s first female coroner.
Shumaker won with 6,207 votes, while Stansell took 1,289 votes. There were 34 write-in votes.
The total votes does not include Corsica. For unknown reasons, the county’s unofficial election results on their website were listed as zero for all races.
Incumbent Republican Brian K. Spencer, of Grampian, won out over his challenger, Democrat Curtis James Campman, of Clearfield, for the job of Prothonotary and Clerk of Courts. Spencer had 6,819 votes, while Campman had 6,043.
Republican incumbent Tom Adamson will resume his position as county controller. He received 7,783 votes compared to his Democratic challenger Paula A. Miller’s 4,973 votes.
In Elk County, races for District Attorney and Magisterial District Judge 59-3-03 were both uncontested.
All results are unofficial until certified by the county’s board of elections.
These results do not reflect the total write-in votes, which will be available at the later date.
