NEW CASTLE — Rosemary Henderson won a Republican nomination for a four-year term on New Castle City Council in Tuesday’s primary.

William Schafer won the Republican nomination for a two-year term on council.

Henderson received 356 votes for the four-year term, according to the Lawrence County Board of Elections. She was the lone Republican candidate seeking a four-year term.

Wednesday’s edition incorrectly stated she was the lone Republican candidate for the two-year term.

Schafer had 259 votes to win the two-year nomination. Henderson had 185 votes.

Wednesday’s edition incorrectly stated both ran for the four-year term.

City voters will elect two council candidates to four-year terms and one candidate for a two-year term in November.

In the Wilmington school board race, the four Republican candidates selected Tuesday are: Jennifer Hunt, Scott Frederick, Joe Kollar and Lynn L. Foltz.

Carrie Hahn did not have enough votes to be nominated as a Republican.

Wednesday’s edition indicated she was one of the four nominees and Kollar was not.

However, Hahn did receive enough votes from Democrats in Tuesday’s primary and will be on November’s ballot.
