“I’m truly honored that the citizens of Tecumseh put their faith in me and I intend to work hard and not let them down. I’m excited to get started,” said Philo following the election.

Incumbents Gary Naugle and Laurence VanAlstine Jr. retained their seats, with Naugle receiving the highest number of votes, making him mayor pro tem. Naugle received 444 votes and VanAlstine Jr. received 400.

Ann Wann received 245 votes and Judith Ann Lividini received 186.

Of the 6,361 registered voters in Tecumseh, 628, or 10 percent of the voters, turned out for this election.
