Two incumbents lose seats on JS School Board

JERSEY SHORE — In the Jersey Shore Area School District, unofficial voting results show two incumbents will not be moving on to the general election this fall.

One of the main issues in the district is the closing of schools, which all the newcomers came out against using that as a solution to solve the deficit in the district.

Nancy Stover and John Pecchia did not garner enough votes to carry them through as newcomers Nancy Petrosky, Angela Grant and Wayne E. Kinley managed to win enough votes on both the Republican and Democratic ballots to clinch a spot on the ticket.

In Region One, only two seats were available and Petrosky and Kinley earned enough votes on both the Democratic and Republican ballots in both Lycoming and Clinton County to move ahead. In Lycoming County, Petrosky earned a total of 505 votes and Kinley got 526. In Clinton County, Petrosky received 228 votes and Kinley,193.

In Region 3, Pecchia lost his bid to retain his seat on the board to newcomer Angela Grant, who received 584 votes in Lycoming County and 71 votes in Clinton County. Pecchia received 258 votes in Lycoming County and 44 in Clinton County.

Mary Thomas retains her seat in Region 2 as she and Patrice Doebler were the only two candidates on the ballot vying for two seats in Region 2. Thomas received 642 and Patrice Doebler, 616.
