Upper Milford Board of Supervisors Field Narrowed to Two
Republican Carl R. Stevenson and Democrat George DeVault will square off in November general election.
In the primary bid for Upper Milford Supervisor, there were four candidates for one open seat – two Republicans and two Democrats. Two candidates were eliminated in today’s primary vote, leaving two to go head-to-head in November.
Patch’s numbers -- which are unofficial until certified by Lehigh County -- are as follows:
Carl R. Stevenson, Republican - 385 votes
John Zgura, Republican – 211 votes
Steven Ackerman, Democrat --166 votes
George DeVault, Democrat -- 219 votes
That means that in the fall, Stevenson will again face DeVault in the general election on Nov. 8. They will vie for a single vacant seat and the winner will serve a six-year term.
Current Supervisors Chairman Steven Ackerman lost his bid for reelection.
According to voter registration statistics found on the Lehigh County elections and voter registration Web site, there were 2,437 registered Republicans and 2,018 registered Democrats eligible to participate in today’s primary election in Upper Milford Township.
