Well it looks like Spingler will return to Radnor's BoC with a solid majority of like minded Dem's on the board. Spingy's victory of 9 votes is closer than many thought it would be, it is a testament to first time candidate Emily Hobson. I'd expect Hobson to challenge some of Spingler's absentee ballots, but as of tonight, Spingler is unbound and unstoppable.
Hold on to your wallets Radnor Taxpayers...
Went to bed with Spingy eking out a narrow victory only to wake to a slim Hopkins win. While I would expect Spingler to challenge, it looks good, very good, for Radnor.

Home for lunch and Spingy has risen again...Natch!
Longtime Radnor Commissioner Bill Spingler edges out challenger
It was deja vu for Radnor's Bil Spingler.
According to unofficial election results, the longtime Ward 3 commissioner edged out Republican Emily Hobson by nine votes.
In 1991 he won re-election by the same margin.
His victory was a combination of voters hitting the poles and absentee ballots.
“It feels great,” said Spingler, who is an associate broker in real estate.
Spingler has served 22 years on the board. Prior to that he served eight years as a Delaware County Commissioner.
He credits his victory on attempting to personally visit the homes of every constituent in his ward. He said he chatted with about 99 percent of his constituents.
"I look forward to working with the residents of Radnor Township for the next four years to accomplish a lot of good things together,” he remarked during an interview.
