Jack O’Connor won Tuesday’s Republican primary election and will be the party’s candidate for mayor in the March 19 village election.
O’Connor received 106 votes to defeat William White, who received 51 votes. The totals include machine tallies and absentee ballots.
Voting for the village’s enrolled Republicans was at the Waterloo Recreation and Community Center.
O’Connor will now face Democratic incumbent Mayor Ted Young in the March 19 election.
White is the Seneca County Conservative Party chairman and an enrolled Conservative. He was endorsed by the village Republican Committee and O’Connor, a former trustee, also filed Republican nominating petitions to force Tuesday’s primary race.
White was nominated by the village Conservatives Monday night. Others nominated by the Conservatives Monday were incumbent Republicans Les Marquart for trustee and Conrad Struzik for village justice and challenger Robert McGill for trustee.
