In a locally debated contest, the numbers for voting in Octorara’s District III (including Parkesburg Borough, Highland and Londonderry Townships) confirm that area voters realize the real issues within the district, that attacking fellow directors, threatening to close school buildings and cutting off important and vital activities, is not the way to go. Respectful conversations and thoughtful and creative ways to make tax receipts go further appear to rule the day.
Incumbent Director Timothy Alexander appeared to be defeated by candidates Matthew Hurley, an Octorara graduate and engineer and Charlie Konnecker,Jr. sales manager.
