ELECTION CANDIDATES 070507

Filed under: ELECTION INFO — laurelmountainboro @ 2:36 am
COUNCIL CANDIDATES MAY 2007Laurel Mountain Borough council membership currently has four persons appointed by council to replace members who have resigned.
Monte Holland (Republican), Daneen Kinsey, John Miller and Mary Jane Snyder.
Holland (Rep.), Kinsey (Dem.) and Snyder (Dem.) filed with the Westmoreland County Board of Elections to run in the May primary election for their party’s nomination for a council seat.
Miller is affiliated with the Independent Party.
The Board of Election’s petition to run in the primary election requires a minimum of ten signatures from the candidate’s political party. Since there are fewer than ten residents in Laurel Mountain Borough affiliated with the Independent Party, Miller was unable to submit a petition to the Board of Elections.
Voters of other political affiliation can submit a write-in vote to place Miller’s name on the November ballot.

Joe Griffith (Rep.), council president, is the sole elected official on borough council.

The appointed borough council members replaced Robert Appleby, Aaron Gougenour, Tom Mizikar, Tom Murphy and Robert Woodall.
Appleby and Mizikar resigned from borough council for personal reasons; Gougenour resigned due to a conflict with his work schedule and Woodall resigned borough council due to relocation and ill health.
