State Rep. Frank Dermody, D-Oakmont, will once again represent the voters of Pennsylvania’s 33rd District, which includes several communities in the Alle-Kiski Valley.

Dermody collected 55 percent of the votes cast in the district compared with Republican Joshua Nulph’s 45 percent shortly after 11 p.m., according to the state’s unofficial election results. The 33rd District includes parts of Allegheny and Westmoreland counties. In the Valley, it includes Arnold, Brackenridge, Cheswick, East Deer, Frazer, Harmar, part of Harrison, Indiana Township, New Kensington, Oakmont, Springdale, Springdale Township and Tarentum.

Dermody has held the seat since 1991.

He thanked the voters for another opportunity to serve them.

“It was a good victory,” he said. “We won in almost every community but one in the district. It was a resounding victory. We went out with a very positive message … and I think it resounded with them.”

He plans to work with Gov. Tom Wolf to adequately fund education, create jobs with family sustaining wages, and protect the environment.

Nulph, 21, of Harrison, said he was grateful for the opportunity to run, and wished Dermody the best.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
