Ligonier Township voters during Tuesday’s general election opted to keep a current supervisor in office and tabbed a newcomer to fill the other available six-year term.

Incumbent Supervisor D. Scott Matson earned both Democratic and Republican party nominations in May’s primary election and was the top vote-getter Tuesday, securing re-election with 44.87% (1,302 votes) of the vote based on unofficial totals.

Democrat Daniel T. Weimer edged former supervisor Bruce Robinson, a Republican, for the other available supervisors seat. Weimer earned 29.67% (861) of the vote compared to 25.29% (734) for Robinson.

Unofficial election results do not include write-in votes or absentee ballot results, which have yet to be tabulated.

Weimer in his campaign touted himself as a lifelong Ligonier Township resident with more than 20 years of experience in transportation construction inspection services and planning. He said he will run on a platform of fiscal responsibility and economic development, and said he is opposed to the idea of selling the Ligonier Township Municipal Authority to the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County.
