Lakewood Village Trustee Paul Serwatka won his race for Village President when the man who filed against him, Ken Santowski, ran an unsuccessful write-in campaign after taking himself off the ballot.
The vote was 588 for Serwatka and 246 for a write-in, presumably Santowski.
Serwatka got his start in local politics by running a successful write-in campaign two years ago, trouncing all the candidates on the ballot.
Serwatka’s three Village Trustee candidates also came out on top.
The results follow:
- Amy Fues Odom – 595
- Philip Stephan – 544
- Richard Richie – 539
- Gene Furey – 349
- John Schrauf – 347
