Franklin County GOP chooses Young for supervisors election

September 13, 2007|By ASHLEY HARTMAN

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The Franklin County Republican Committee voted 6-4 Wednesday night to put Fred Young III of Greencastle on the November ballot for the Antrim Township Board of Supervisors.

"He's someone who can work with the supervisors, he had broad knowledge and a lot of energy," said James Taylor, chairman of the Franklin County Republican Party.

Young was sworn in Tuesday night to serve on the Antrim Township Board of Supervisors until Dec. 31 to fill the vacancy left by Robert Whitmore. However, because Whitmore resigned more than two months before the general election, the county's political parties each will nominate a candidate for the Nov. 6 ballot.

Larry Eberly, Dwight Thrush, Rodney Eberly and Robert Schemmerling had also submitted letters of interest and resumes to the Franklin County Republican Committee. Each candidate was interviewed individually during the meeting.

If Young is elected to the board of supervisors in November, he would serve from January 2008 to December 2009 to finish off the four-year term vacated by Whitmore.
