Geyer to lead Londonderry board, while Lower Swatara retains Wilt

Posted

The Londonderry Township Board of Supervisors elected a new chairman while the Lower Swatara Board of Commissioners voted to keep the same leadership during reorganizational meetings Monday.

Londonderry supervisors unanimously elected Mike Geyer as the chairman and Bart Shellenhamer as the vice chairman.

The pair were elected in 2014, and their second terms run through 2023.

Geyer served as vice chairman last year with Supervisor Anna Dale serving as chairwoman.

In Lower Swatara, Dauphin County Common Pleas Judge John F. Cherry swore in Commissioners Mike Davies, Todd Truntz and Jon Wilt for another term.

“Every township in this county forms an important cog in the wheel that makes this county run,” Cherry said.

Davies nominated Wilt as board president. Wilt, who has been board president since 2017, was re-elected with a 3-2 vote with Commissioners Chris DeHart and Ron Paul voting against.  There were no other nominations.

Truntz was unanimously voted vice president, and Paul was elected assistant secretary.
