November 5, 2013
Tribune Chronicle |

BAZETTA -- In a game of musical election chairs, incumbent Frank Parke and newcomer Ted Webb won, leaving incumbent Don Urchek on the outside Tuesday.

With three candidates circling the two trustee board openings, Parke led with 39.2 percent of the votes and Webb swept up 35.4 percent, according to unofficial and incomplete results. Urchek was not far behind with 25.4 percent.

"I'm feeling pretty good. Four years ago I went to bed a winner and when I woke up I was a loser, so I'm hoping that doesn't happen again. It doesnt look like it, at least," said Webb about 10 p.m. Tuesday.

The last time the game was played in November 2009, nine candidates ran for two open trustee seats. Though the races top contenders were the same, Webb lost by 10 votes to Urchek, who, along with Parke, began his first term in office.
