Allentown's next Mayor will be Latin. It will be either Democrat Matt Tuerk or Republican Tim Ramos. Now that Lehigh County elections officials have tallied the mail-in ballots, Tuerk has emerged as the Democratic nominee (2,048), followed by Ray O'Connell (1,933), Julio Guridy (1,907) and Ce-Ce Gerlach (1,802).
Tuerk's 115-vote margin could be reversed once canvassing begins, but that is rare.
Guridy certainly had the momentum, but only garnered 343 MIBs.
