UPDATE: DANVILLE – The Montour County Commissioner’s race has its nominees for the general election this fall.
Montour County Coroner Scott Lynn and Danville Business Alliance Executive Director Rebecca Dressler won the GOP nomination and will be on the commissioner’s ballot in November’s general election.
Incumbent Montour County Commissioner Trevor Finn and Danville Councilman Wesley Walters were the only two candidates running on the Democratic side and both will move on to the November race.
Tuesday’s unofficial primary election results were announced late Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning.
SUNBURY – Lynda Schelgel Culver’s successor in the Pennsylvania state house will be a Republican. Mike Stender of Sunbury, defeated Democrat Trevor Finn od Danville. By a two to one margin, Stender won the 108th district special election.
