McCleaf leads incumbent Kirby in Washington Township



WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Incumbent James Kirby was in second place with 72 votes in the three-way race for Washington Township Supervisor in the Republican primary Tuesday with only one of the township's five voting precincts counted, according to unofficial totals.

Leading at that point was challenger C. Stewart McCleaf with 87 votes. Dixie Myers was in third place with 66 votes.

Incumbent supervisor John Beck is not seeking reelection.

No Democrat filed.

However the seat recently filled by the appointment of Art Cordell to fill the seat of incumbent supervisor Quinter Baumgardner who died in office on March 20 comes up for vote on Nov. 6.

Cordell's appointment runs only through Dec. 31. He has to file, run and win on Nov. 6 general in order to keep his seat for two more years. The township's Republican and Democratic committees can both field candidates for November with no guarantee at this time that Cordell will get the GOP nod.

Cordell said he plans to run.
