Tim Hester secures both the Republican and Democratic nominations.
Seneca Valley School Board candidate Tim Hester is moving on to the general election in November. Hester, who cross-filed in the race, won the both the Republican and Democratic nominations over fellow Cranberry resident Judi Rexford in Tuesday’s primary election. Because he won on both tickets, Hester—barring a write-in vote campaign—should be victorious in the fall’s general election. In the only contested race for Seneca Valley School Board, Hester and Rexford were both vying for the Cranberry Township East III and West V, Region 5 seat that’s being vacated by Eric Gordon. Gordon, who was running for Cranberry Township’s Board of Supervisors, lost the Republican nomination Tuesday to candidate Bruce Hezlep. With nine out of nine …

Bruce Hezlep says the time was right to take his volunteerism to the next step.
Another Republican candidate has announced his intention to run for Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors when Dave Root’s term expires at the end of the year.

Write-in candidate Steve Smith says he will not pursue representing the 12th District in the House of Representatives.
The votes are in, and incumbent state Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, R-Cranberry, will seek his eighth term representing the 12th Legislative District in the fall general election. Barring a write-in campaign, he will not face a challenger in November. After launching a last-minute write-in campaign to take on Metcalfe in the primary election, Steve Smith, principal of Haine Middle School in the Seneca Valley School District, said he is pulling himself out of the race. No candidate had filed to run on the Democratic ballot, and Metcalfe had been unopposed on the Republican ballot before Smith announced his write-in campaign earlier this month. To appear on the ballot in the November general election, Smith, a Republican, needed to win 300 write-in …

Residents complain about email supporting two supervisors that was sent from a township computer.
Cranberry Township has disciplined an employee who forwarded a campaign email from her work address during last Tuesday’s primary election.
