In a sur­pris­ingly lop­sided out­come, City Con­trol­ler Alan Butkovitz won the three-way Demo­crat­ic primary elec­tion on Tues­day night.

Un­of­fi­cial re­turns from 95 per­cent of di­vi­sions showed that Butkovitz was win­ning 61 per­cent of the vote. Brett Man­del was tak­ing 31 per­cent. Mark Zecca had 8 per­cent.

Butkovitz, a Castor Gar­dens res­id­ent, is seek­ing his third four-year term. He was first elec­ted in 2005 after serving 15 years as a state rep­res­ent­at­ive.

In 2009, Butkovitz sur­vived a tough, three-way primary fight with Man­del and John Brax­ton.

Man­del, a former deputy city con­trol­ler, raised a good bit of money for the re­match, but nev­er seemed to gain the trac­tion he had in ‘09.

In ad­di­tion, the low turnout be­nefited Butkovitz, who had the sup­port of the party and uni­ons.

In the gen­er­al elec­tion, Butkovitz will face Re­pub­lic­an Terry Tracy.

If Butkovitz wins, talk will be­gin to swirl about a pos­sible may­or­al run in 2015.

In oth­er races, the party-en­dorsed can­did­ates were faring very well.

In the race for six seats on Com­mon Pleas Court, win­ners were Timi­ka Lane, Joe Fernandes, Anne Mar­ie Coyle, Dan Mc­Caf­fery and Gio­vanni Camp­bell.

Fernandes, of Somer­ton, and Mc­Caf­fery, of East Tor­res­dale, were backed by the party.

Coyle, of the Far North­east, is a Re­pub­lic­an who did not have the party nod, but she be­nefited from the top bal­lot spot.

The fi­nal spot was up for grabs between Si­erra Thomas Street and Dawn Tan­credi.

In the Demo­crat­ic primary for three seats on Mu­ni­cip­al Court, party-backed Mar­tin Cole­man and Henry Le­wan­dowski were run­away win­ners. Judge Fran Shieds, a Lawndale res­id­ent ap­poin­ted to the bench last Ju­ly by Gov. Tom Corbett, pulled away from Tracy Ro­man for the third slot.

In the Demo­crat­ic primary for three Traffic Court seats, party-backed Omar Sabir, Marnie Aument-Loughery and Donna DeR­ose, of Fox Chase, were lead­ing hand­ily.

Statewide, in the Demo­crat­ic primary for a Su­per­i­or Court seat, Phil­adelphia Mu­ni­cip­al Court Judge Joe Wa­ters, a former po­lice cap­tain and the party-en­dorsed can­did­ate, was lead­ing Al­legheny County Com­mon Pleas Court Judge Jack McVay, 58 per­cent to 42 per­cent, with only 51 per­cent of the vote coun­ted.  

Re­pub­lic­an Vic Sta­bile, a Har­ris­burg-area at­tor­ney, was un­op­posed.

Phil­adelphia Dis­trict At­tor­ney Seth Wil­li­ams was un­op­posed in the Demo­crat­ic primary. So was Re­pub­lic­an Danny Al­varez, a law­yer from Somer­ton. ••
