The other big winner of the day was the Democratic candidate for the City Controller, Rebeca Rhynhart, who in the primaries surprised and removed from the contest the current comptroller Alan Butkovitz and this time won over the Republican candidate Michael Tomlinson with 158,502 votes in favor.
Rhynhart is the first woman to reach the Controller's office in the city. She has experience in public administration. She was part of the office of former Mayor Michael Nutter as his budget director and current Mayor Kenney as head of the administrative office.
The closeness with Kenney has earned her criticism since her position aims to exercise strict control and monitoring of public spending in the city. However, Rhynhart has promised to exercise transparency and save taxpayers millions of dollars.
The day went through in total normality and more than 200,000 people attended the polling stations to elect the officials that will rule the fundamental institutions for the administration of justice and finance in the city.
