City Council candidates Rich Crispo, Bill Erxleben and John Dulcich led in unofficial election results released Thursday evening.

In Position 5, Karin Blakley ran against Crispo. In Position 6, Erxleben ran against Kandy Schendel. In Position 7, Dulcich ran against incumbent Jean Garber.

Crispo led Blakley 65 percent to 35 percent, Erxleben led Schendel 62 to 38 percent and Dulcich led Garber 52 percent to 48 percent in a close race.

Blakley, Schendel and Garber have advertised together, and they place priority developing downtown Newcastle with mixed-use buildings. They said although the city faces financial challenges, they can move the city forward, prioritize and make do with less.

Crispo said he is opposed to developing Newcastle’s downtown with mixed-use, multistory buildings, as he said he found community members were not in favor of the idea.

Erxlben and Dulcich are opposed to the city’s floor-area ratio requirements that promote the use of multistory, mixed-use buildings, as they said they feel the decision to develop mixed-use, multistory buildings should be the developer’s, not the city’s.
