CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Three-term Chambersburg Mayor Robert P. Morris, a Democrat, was leading Republican opponent Douglas Niemond by more than 350 votes in Tuesday's general election, according to unofficial totals available at press time.
The tally came with 28 of Franklin County's 75 precincts reporting results.
The mayoral race was the only contested race in the borough. The winner will serve a four-year term.
Morris has been a member of Chambersburg's borough government for 18 years, six as a council member and 12 as mayor.
Both candidates for mayor have focused on making improvements and modernizing the borough's police department in their campaigns for the office.
