Six Democrats sought their party’s nomination for Allegheny County executive. See the primary election results here.
The Democratic primary winner will face Joe Rockey in the November general election for the executive position. Rockey, a former PNC Financial Services executive, was unopposed for the Republican nomination.
Four other candidates were on the Democratic ballot: Pittsburgh city Controller Michael Lamb; attorney and former county Councilman Dave Fawcett; Theresa Colaizzi, a former Pittsburgh Public Schools board member and Will Parker, a mobile app developer.
The six Democrats were vying to succeed county Executive Rich Fitzgerald, who is term-limited and will leave office after 12 years in December. The winner will be in charge of a county with a population of $1.2 million, a $3 billion budget, 7,500 employees, 400 miles of roads and 500 bridges.
