News

(WBRE/WYOU-TV)   In the Race for Lackawanna County Community Commissioner two incumbents failed to get their party nomination.  Voters decided not to give the Incumbent (D) Commissioner O’Malley a chance at another term.  O’Malley conceded the election for county commissioner.   Patrick O’Malley took the podium shortly after 10 PM personally conceding the race. He told supporters it was a tremendous honor to have the opportunity to serve as Lackawanna county commissioner.

He said as chairman of the board the last four years, he helped accomplish more than most commissioners have in 12 years. He received cheers when he said he did not vote for a tax increase in the last seven years. He said he loves giving back and that this defeat will not stop him and promised he will be back.

As for attorney Debi Domenick she called her victory very bittersweet. She credited O’Malley with teaching her so much. She says she hopes to do right by him if she becomes the next commissioner.

Leading all Democrats in the commissioner race was incumbent Jerry Notarianni.

 “You know, elections are like rolling the dice. It’s a gamble every time you run for public office and anybody who signs up and gets their petitions filled out I mean that’s where you put yourself. So you know I expected anything can happen in an election,” Said Pat O’Malley, (D) Lackawanna County Commissioner Chairman  

 “So I do think that being a woman and I’m not afraid to say it definitely helped me. And, you know, I don’t know why things shook out the way they did in regards to Pat and Jerry but I can only say that I am a professional and I will do what’s best for the county and I am going to work hard regardless who I am sitting next to,” Said Debi Domenick, (D) Lackawanna County Commissioner Nominee

.

“I don’t know Debbie Dominick and I will have to try to work very hard with her and I hope she has an open mind on that and we’re able to get that going in the right direction.  I wish her the best, I don’t know her I wish her the best and look forward to working with her” Said Jerry Notarianni, D-Lackawanna County Commissioner Nominee.

Republicans Chris Chermak and Michael Giannetta were victorious over GOP incumbent Laureen Cumming.
