Election Day was business as usual in the borough of Avon as incumbent commissioners Robert McGovern, Francis Gorman and Robert Mahon, all independents, won re-election in an uncontested election.


Robert McGovern (Ind) √ 344

Francis Gorman (Ind) √ 337

Robert Mahon (Ind) √ 365


Republican candidate Jim Bean won a full term on the council while sitting councilwoman Jennifer Nicolay will finish out one year of an unexpired term she is currently filling.

Council (one-year, unexpired term)

No surprises here. Two incumbent Democrats were both re-elected to the borough council.


Jared Cohen (Dem) √ 142

Kevin Lynch (Dem) √ 161

Spring Lake

It was a tough day for Republicans in Spring Lake as Democrat Mayor Jennifer Naughton won re-election in a landslide while Independent candidates Paul Jordan and Brendan Judge also beat out their Republican counterparts handily.

Patricia Cindea (Rep) √ 797

James Shuler (Rep) 781

John Tully (Dem) 681

William Foley (Rep) √ 519
