One of the big surprises in Tuesday's Primary election was in the Democrat Race in Akron Ward 6.
Long-time Councilman Bob Otterman was defeated by political newcomer Bob Hoch. The difference in the race, 71 votes.
The 61-year old Hoch is a retired manager at ACME.
The 79-year old Otterman has served in elective offices for more than 40 years at the Municipal, County and State Levels.
Hoch says he 'was surprised' at the results of yesterday's election. Hoch believes people in the Ellet community wanted a 'new voice' to represent them at Akron City Hall. He says the decision has nothing 'to do with Bob Otterman, its just that people wanted change.'
Hoch will face Republican David Goodspeed in November for the Ward 6 Council seat.
