Ligonier Township ballot lists 3 vying for new supervisor seats
Two additional supervisor positions are available in Ligonier Township in this year's election; a three-year term and a five-year term.
Wade E. Thomas, 53, is seeking the Republican nomination for the five-year seat. He previously served a six-year term as supervisor in 1987, after which he did not seek reelection. He owns and operates George Thomas Contracting. He lives with his wife of 27 years, Kimberly, and their two children.
Bruce Robinson, 63, is vying for the Republican nomination for the three-year seat. He works as the general manager at Laurel Valley Golf Club and serves as the township secretary. He is president of the Ligonier Valley School Board, member of the Brighter Future Political Action Committee, president of the Ligonier Rotary Club and member of the Ligonier Volunteer Hose Co. No. 1.
Albert “Mike” Shadron, 58, is the sole candidate seeking the Democratic nomination for both seats. He previously served on the board after Keith Whipkey's resignation last May. Shadron has worked on the road crew for 35 years, and has been a member of the Ligonier Township Fire Department No. 1 in Waterford for 40 years. He has two daughters.
Last November, voters approved a ballot referendum in favor of expanding the three-member board of supervisors to five members.
Voters will head to the polls on May 20 to cast their ballots for the added seats.
