WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Doug Tengler, a two-year member of the Waynesboro Borough Council, was elected president of the five-member board Monday during its reorganization meeting.
Councilman Chip McCammon was elected vice-president.
Both officers will serve two-year terms.
Tengler succeeds Dick Starliper as president. Starliper decided not to seek re-election in November. Starliper's council seat will be occupied by John Cook, who won the seat in November.
Cook was sworn in Monday night by District Justice Larry Pentz along with re-elected Council members Allen W. Porter, Ardie Winters and McCammon.
Mayor Louis Barlup was also re-elected in November and sworn in Monday.
Vicki Jo Huff, a six-year council member and the board's only woman, and Tengler are half-way through their four-year terms.
Huff said she had expressed interest in the presidency, but was told by several members that they would not support a woman in the top job. Council meetings are run by the president.
