Race for supervisor a close one
The Eastman Township board will be much the same following Tuesday’s Spring Election.
Reclaiming their seats are Sam Tesar as chairman, David Slaght and Lonnie Achenbach as supervisors and Dale Sprosty as treasurer. Heather Hoffman will be the new face as clerk, taking over for Marlene Simmons who chose not to run for re-election.
In the chairman race, incumbent Tesar won 77 to 62 over challenger Gaylord Kramer.
Four town residents were up for the two supervisor positions. Incumbents Slaght and Achenbach received 86 and 71 votes, respectively, while challenger Michael Higgins narrowly missed out on his bid with 68 votes. Donald Noel received 28 votes in the race.
Sprosty was the sole name on the ballot for treasurer and received 134 votes.
In the race for clerk, Hoffman defeated fellow newcomer Rose Ann Achenbach, 76-53.
