Republicans Thomas, Robinson added to Ligonier board of supervisors
Republicans Wade Thomas and Bruce Robinson will fill two seats added to the Ligonier Township board of supervisors.
They defeated Democrat Albert H. “Mike” Shadron on Tuesday in the race for one five-year term and one three-year term, according to unofficial election returns.
Thomas received 63.5 percent of the votes, and Robinson took 61.3 percent.
Thomas, 53, served a six-year term as supervisor from 1988 to 1994, after which he did not seek re-election. He operates George Thomas Contracting.
“The voters came out and spoke, and they want change in Ligonier Township,” Thomas said.
“Ligonier Township is coming out of the 1950s the first Monday in January,” when the two new supervisors take office, he said.
Robinson, 63, is president of the Ligonier Valley School Board and secretary for Ligonier Township. He is the general manager of Laurel Valley Golf Club.
“I appreciate the voters coming out to support Wade and I,” Robinson said. “We‘re going to work real hard for the township.”
