WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Paul Monroe has declared himself the new sheriff in Trumbull County Tuesday night.

Monroe is ahead of incumbent Thomas Altiere, 53% to 46%, with 91% of the county’s voting precincts reporting.

Monroe had the Democratic Party’s endorsement, but fellow Democrat Thomas Altiere held the position for 23 years as the county’s longest-running sheriff. If elected, it would have been Altiere’s seventh term in office.

Around 9:40 p.m., Monroe made a victory speech, declaring himself the winner, and Altiere has conceded the result. Monroe will not face a Republican challenger in the fall, but could face an independent candidate.

David Cook failed in his bid to oust incumbent Dan Polivka for the county commissioner’s spot.

Glenn Holmes won the primary race for the 63rd district, while Tod Latell won the race for the Trumbull County Recorder’s office.

WKBN has the latest election results from the Mahoning Valley and around the state and country.
