Tuesday’s Election may bring some new faces to area boards, but some incumbents will remain as well. Here are some of the top races. All results are unofficial pending county review.
Waynesboro Area School District
In the Waynesboro Area School District-North End, Republican Rachel Fortney took 77% of the votes with 1,007 ballots cast in her favor, while Kim Miles garnered 12% or 158 votes. A write-in in the North End took 132 votes for the 2-year term. Miles pulled ahead in the 4-year term slot, with 59% of the votes (694) over a write-in with 40% (469 votes).
Also from the Borough, it appears Wendy Royer will keep her seat with 761 votes. James Marvin claimed 342 votes, but with just two seats open, 433 write-in votes could mean a challenge for him.
