Coughlin Defeats Incumbent For Nanticoke Mayor
NANTICOKE — Nanticoke Council Vice President Kevin Coughlin will be the city’s next mayor.
He defeated incumbent Nicole Colatosti-Mackiewicz for the Democratic nomination in the primary Tuesday, according to unofficial results. There was no challenger for the Republican nomination.
The unofficial vote count with 100 percent of precincts reporting showed Coughlin received 790 votes while Colatosti-Mackiewicz got 490 votes.
“I’m very happy,” Coughlin said Tuesday night. “I had a lot of great people behind me. I couldn’t do it without them.”
Nanticoke Council chose Colatosti-Mackiewicz to serve as the first woman mayor in January after former Mayor Rich Wiaterowski’s death.
