Chambersburg, Pa. - District 3 District Justice John P. Weyman was trailing in his bid for a third six-year term to challenger Richard L. Alloway II in Tuesday's Franklin County municipal primary.

With most of the 11 precincts reporting, Alloway II was leading Weyman 995-850 in the GOP primary and 434-300 in the Democratic primary.

In the late going, two of three Hamilton Township precincts had not been tabulated. Lurgan Township also had not reported results.

Weyman, 58, of 10300 Upper Strasburg Road in Letterkenny Township, is running against Alloway, 35, of 110 Emerald Drive in Hamilton Township, an attorney who spent five years as a legislative aide to State Sen. Terry Punt.

The creation of the new District 7 seat created a challenge for Weyman and an opportunity for Alloway. District 3 lost Orrstown, Southampton Township and West End Shippensburg in redistricting. Hamilton Township, where Alloway lives, was added to District 3, making him eligible to run for the office.

The position of district justice pays $60,031 this year, according to a spokesman for the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts.

Among their duties, district justices do arraignments and preliminary hearings in criminal cases and also hear minor civil complaints.

In Pennsylvania, absentee ballots are included in the unofficial results.
