Incumbent Josh Parsons and newcomer Ray D’Agostino, who were running in tandem, were the leading Republican vote-getters in the race for county commissioner in Lancaster County.
According to unofficial results, Parsons had 18,158 votes and D’Agostino had 15,462.
They held off Republican challenger Douglas Brubaker, who had 11,429 votes, meaning he won’t be on the general election ballot in November.
The opening on the board will be seat held by Dennis Stuckey, who chose not to run again.
Incumbent Democrat Craig Lehman ran unopposed; the three-member board of commissioners is required by law to have at least one Democrat.
Parsons is presently chairman of the commissioners. An Army veteran, he’s is a former Lancaster County Clerk of Courts and former Lancaster County assistant district attorney.
D’Agostino is CEO of Lancaster Housing Opportunity Partnership, a non-profit that focuses on affordable housing for people with low or moderate incomes. He also also worked as a municipal manager and was chief of staff for former state Sen. Lloyd Smucker.
