The WEECC Is No Longer Active

Our community is now represented by the:
Elliott Community Group

In late 2010 community involvement with the West End Elliott Citizens Council ceased after 47 years of service. This started with the loss of two very active friends and neighbors: Elmer Clark who passed on in 2009, and Norene Beatty who moved to another nearby community. The last known participant was Matt Hogue.

These pages are no longer maintainted, and remain online for historical review.

This is past election info, see current info here.

Primary elections were May 18, 1999
(League of Women's Voters overview here)

Did you know?

You can't vote in a Primary
if you are not registered 
affliated with a party! And,
you can't vote in any election
if you are not registered.

Registration info here.

Results can be found here: Democrats, Republicans.

General elections will be held November 2, 1999.

This election was local, and a lot of it was part of building the new "Home Rule Charter" Allegheny County Council, which was created to transfer substantial authority over our County government from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to the people of Allegheny County. For the Allegheny elections, our West End/Elliott is County Council district 12 (map).

Note that this was a Primary, which selects individuals for the general election. Thus, since Pennsylvania is a closed Primary state, only party members could nominate candidates for the General Election. So, you needed to know if you were registered Democrat or Republican (anything else and there were no options), and then follow the links next to each candidates below to to see the list of individuals that ran in your party.

However, for future elections, keep in mind that everyone CAN vote on all ballot questions regardless of individual party affiliation (even in a primary). This would include amendments to the state constitution, bond issues, and special elections.  This did not concern this election, since there were no ballot questions presented. But, it is an issue to keep in mind, because I've been told that quite often they will sneak the most important, and perhaps controversial, issues into the primary since less people vote.

West End/Elliott residents got to vote for:
