WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Unofficial returns Tuesday night showed that a write-in candidate might have taken a regional Waynesboro Area School Board seat from the woman who won both the Democratic and Republican nominations in May's primary election. Local chiropractor and registered Democrat Mindy Rouzer recently announced a last-minute write-in campaign for the open four-year term. She had friends and family stationed outside several polling places on Tuesday. Write-in votes won't be canvassed until later this week, but unofficial result tallies showed that Jennifer Johns, who won the nominations in May, had secured only 37 percent of the vote from Borough of Waynesboro voters.
