Erie Election Results: A Defeat for Oil & Gas


Heralded as “Hope for the Future” according to one Erie facebook denizen, results for the 2018 Erie municipal elections returned a stunning defeat to oil & gas interests. More importantly, results showed were from, and for, a town invested in integrity and reigning in outsized electoral influence by monied interests. False allegations of bias earlier reported by Yellow Scene aided in the defeat. In a validation of Yellow Scene coverage and predictions, all four of the candidates endorsed by our editorial team – Jennifer Carroll for Mayor, Adam Haid, Bill Gippe, and Christiann Van Woudenberg for Trustee – were victorious. Ballot issue 3A, a funding proposal for a new city hall, failed, while 3B, sale of land parcel to support the expansion, passed.

As of press time, neither Dan Woog’s official Facebook nor official campaign website had posted concession or congratulations to Jennifer Carroll.

Final unofficial results posted to the Erie city site, viewable here, are as follows:



According to the City Website: The above are the unofficial election results. Official election results will be certified by the Town of Erie Clerk’s Office by April 13, 2018. The newly elected Mayor and Trustees will take the oath of office during the April 24, 2018 Board of Trustees meeting.
