The annual election for Township Committee has come down to yet another close race and the results appear to favor Republican and former Deputy Mayor Jerry Fernandez and Democrat incumbent Deputy Mayor Rich Huber. Huber’s running mate and current Mayor David Amlen lost the election in an embarrassing defeat by newcomer Diane Stampoulos. While Stampoulos got more votes than Huber at the polls by a narrow margin, 2 votes, she fell to third place to Huber after vote-by-mail ballots were counted.

According to Township Clerk Linda Donnelly, the following is the vote breakdown:

Fernandez received 2287, of which 134 were vote-by-mail. Huber received 2179, of which 146 were vote-by-mail. Stampoulos received 2144, of which 109 were vote-by-mail. Amlen received 2085 votes, of which 131 were vote-by-mail. The counts do not include provisional ballot totals but with the margins tabulated by the Clerk, it is unlikely they will affect the overall outcome.

After the municipal re-organization, the Springfield Democratic political party will remain in control of the Township Committee with 3 seats, while the Republicans have gained one seat bringing the total to 2. The Mayor will be selected by the party with the majority and it is likely to be an internal battle between Democrats Rich Huber and David Barnett.
