Greene Township supervisor

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - With just over a third of all precincts reporting, Republican incumbent Paul Ambrose held a slight lead in the race for supervisor in Greene Township.

With 28 of 75 of the county's precincts reporting, Ambrose had 247 votes at press time.

Democratic opponent Douglas Harbach had legged 219 votes.

The race for the six-year supervisor term, the only contested race in the township, had focused primarily on whether Exit 7 on Interstate 81 should be built.

Ambrose, seeking his second term, led the fight against building the exit. He was elected last time on a platform opposing the exit.

He has been fighting the Exit 7 issue on the basis that the township has been treated unfairly by the state.

Harbach, in favor of building the exit, has run a campaign targeting the taxpayers' money spent by the supervisors fighting the issue.

He recently set up two billboards, which state, "Stop the waste! Our Greene Township funds spent opposing Exit 7." The billboards said the latest figures on taxpayer dollars spent on the issue total $627,507.
