November 07, 2007|By ASHLEY HARTMAN

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - With all five precincts reporting, Republican Rick Baer won the seat on the Antrim Township Board of Supervisors vacated by Supervisor Scott Diffenderfer, who was not seeking re-election.

With 984 votes, Baer beat Democrat John Alleman, who received 528 votes, according to complete, but unofficial, results from the Franklin County Election Board.

Baer will serve a six-year term on the Antrim Township Board of Supervisors, who are paid $3,250 this year, according to township records.

Baer, 37, of 14175 Rocking M Lane in Greencastle, is a self-employed electrical contractor.

A native of Greencastle, Baer said he was concerned about the multimillion-dollar price tag associated with the proposed municipal complex, staying ahead of commercial growth and the relationship between the township and borough.

Alleman, 56, of 15576 Pennsylvania Ave. in State Line, Pa., has worked 27 years as an electrical estimator, designer and project manager.

Issues identified by Alleman, who is a lifetime resident of the area, are following through on the proposed municipal complex, bringing jobs to the township and managing growth.
