Democratic Alderwoman Anita Mullane, the prime focus of the City of Lockport's Republicans, was ousted from her 2nd Ward Common Council seat Tuesday by a fellow Democrat.
Amanda E. Farrell, who received the Republican nomination, downed Mullane, 583-451, in complete but unofficial Board of Elections returns.
Lockport Democrats missed their chance at payback, as 5th Ward Alderman Richard E. Abbott, a Democrat who became a supporter of GOP Mayor Anne E. McCaffrey, survived a challenge from Michelle M. Roman, the endorsed Democrat. Abbott won, 502-417.
Alderman Mark S. Devine, a Republican who often doesn't support McCaffrey, easily held his 3rd Ward seat. Council President David R. Wohleben, a Republican, defeated Roxanne M. Devine, Mark Devine's cousin, in the 4th Ward.
