Race for Londonderry supervisor; most county officials unopposed

Posted

Here is a rundown of some of the other races in the area.

Londonderry Township

The two Republican incumbents on the Londonderry Board of Supervisors will face a challenge in the May 21 primary.

Anna J. Dale and Melvin R. Hershey are the incumbents. Beth Graham also is listed on the declared candidates list from the Dauphin County Elections and Voter Registration.

County races

All three Dauphin County commissioners — Republicans Jeff Haste, Mike Pries and Democrat George P. Hartwick III — will be on the May 21 primary ballot, along with Democrat Diane Bowman, a former Susquehanna Township commissioner and longtime community advocate, and Tom Connolly, a Swatara Township commissioner. There are two seats open, so two of the Democrats will move on to the November general election with the two Republicans.

Republican Fran Chardo doesn’t have a listed opponent for his district attorney seat. Neither do Nick Chimienti for sheriff, or Timothy DeFoor for county controller.

Republican incumbent Dale Klein is being challenged by Democrat Brad Koplinski for clerk of courts.

Democrat Bridget M. Whitley and incumbent Republican Jean Marfizo King are running for register of wills and clerk of the orphans court division. Democrat Cole D. Goodman and incumbent Republican Jim Zugay are running for recorder of deeds.

Incumbent Republican Janis Creason is being challenged by Democrat Tim Butler for county treasurer.

Royalton

There are two seats up for grabs in both wards in Royalton.

In the First Ward, Democrat Randy Cain and Republican Kenneth J. DesJardins are on the declared candidate list. In the Second Ward, there are two Republicans, James Fry and Cindy Marsh.
