    Election Results:
    6th Ward Voters Declare Their Independence from George Twardy

    In an historic night in Haverford Township politics, Democrats took two of the four commissioners races. The biggest story was in the 6th ward where controversial commissioner George Twardy was beaten by Larry Holmes. Holmes won three of the four 6th ward precincts. He won the redistricted 6-4 precinct by 240 to 118 votes, and performed stronger than expected in Twardy strongholds in the 6-1 and 6-2 precincts.

    In other races:

    In the 4th ward, Fred Moran (R) withstood a fierce challenge from Jan Marie Rushforth (D), winning by 30 votes to retain his seat.
    In the 8th ward, challenger Tom Broido (D) defeated Ken Richardson (R) in a close race. Mario Oliva (R) took the 2nd ward race over Dan Quinn(D).

    Democracy is a contact sport...
