CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Elaine Gladhill and Stephen Kulla were elected to the Washington Township Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, according to complete, but unofficial election results.

They defeated Dave McCarney, a registered Republican who won the Democratic nomination in May's primary election.

Gladhill and Kulla, who won six-year terms, will replace Paul Benchoff and C. Stewart McCleaf on the board.

Gladhill had 1,229 votes, Kulla had 1,157 votes, and McCarney had 715 votes, according to the unofficial results.

Gladhill, 50, of 14547 Carrosmar Farm Road, Blue Ridge Summit, Pa., is a retired correctional officer who now works in business management. The Republican said she wants to see greater public involvement in matters before the supervisors.

Gladhill, a lifetime township resident, is a member of the One Mountain Foundation, Antietam Watershed Association and Washington Township Conservation Zoning Committee.


"It's time for us to start listening to what the citizens of this township want," she said.

Kulla, 43, of 11617 Woodlea Drive, Waynesboro, said he would look for ways to manage development without taking away the rights of property owners. A senior partner in a local law firm, he has lived in the township for 17 years and previously served on the Waynesboro Area School Board.

"I'd like to thank the voters for the support. I promise I'll work hard to show their trust was well-placed," said Kulla.
