Cindy Carpenter has won her seventh countywide race for the Republican nomination for a new four-year term as a Butler County commissioner.

Carpenter defeated West Chester Twp. Trustee Lee Wong by a margin of 59 percent to nearly 41 percent in Tuesday’s GOP primary election, according to final, unofficial, results from the Butler County Board of Elections.

Carpenter, of Oxford, will now face former Middletown vice mayor Dora Bronston in the Nov. 6 general election. Bronston was unopposed in the Democratic primary election Tuesday.

“I’m excited to have the support of the voters again. I feel like we’re doing really good work in the commissioners’ office,” Carpenter said.

She said during her tenure as a county commissioner, the size of county government has been reduced and that next year about $90 million in debt will be retired. In addition, she said the county is adding new technology to better serve taxpayers.

“It’s really exciting in Butler County,” she said.

Prior to being elected a county commissioner eight years ago, Carpenter was elected to four terms as the county clerk of courts.
