Unofficial election results show former magisterial judge Greg Scott winning the Democratic Party primary to be the state representative for the 54th legislative district, which is a new district comprising the Borough of Conshohocken, Plymouth Township, and the Municipality of Norristown. As of May 18th at 12:37 a.m., Scott holds a 426 vote lead (3,045 to 2,619) over opponent Rochelle Culbreath, who is a former council president in Norristown.
Breaking down the vote by municipality shows Culbreath won two of the three municipalities. She won the Borough of Conshohocken 569 to 523. In Plymouth Township, Culbreath won 1,067 to 1,043. In Norristown, the community most familiar with the two candidates, Scott won 1,479 to 983.
Culbreath has conceded the race. On Facebook, she wrote, “Thank you all for your support. I called to wish Gregory Scott much success I (sic) representing the new 54th District. Thank you everyone for all your support.” Scott has not yet made a statement that we can find.
In the general election scheduled for November 8th, Scott will face Republican Allen Arthur Anderson, who was unopposed on the ballot in the Republican primary.
