Plum GOP chooses new council candidate

Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2013, 11:33 p.m.
 

The Plum Borough Republican Committee has a new candidate for the November council ballot.

Dave Majernik, former committee chairman, said members on Wednesday night unanimously elected Dave Seitz, 48, vice president of the Plum Baseball & Softball Association, to replace council incumbent Keith Nowalk who earlier this month decided not to seek re-election to a four-year term.

“He (Seitz) brings a lot of community service and has a lot of ties to the community that will be helpful in the fall campaign,” Majernik said.

Seitz, who is both an attorney and an engineer, said he had been considering seeking a council seat. He joins the ticket that also has on it council incumbents Mike Doyle, Michael Dell and Leonard Szarmach.

“I am very pleased to be selected, and I am happy to be of help to Plum,” Seitz said.

Nowalk said he will complete his term that expires on Dec. 31. Nowalk is being sued by the Holiday Park Volunteer Fire Department that is seeking $196,536 for what it contends is his failure to pay rent on a building owned by and next door to the fire department on Route 286. Nowalk said earlier this month in an emailed statement to the Plum Advance Leader that he wants to focus on his family and his business.

The Republicans had until Aug. 22 to notify the Allegheny County Department of Elections of the new name for placement on the ballot, Mark Wolosik, county elections division manager, said recently.
