Kittanning council filled
KITTANNING — All the seats will be filled on Kittanning Borough Council when it convenes in January as two newly elected council members prepare to represent the 1st Ward.
Armstrong County Election Bureau Director Wendy Buzard confirmed Friday that Democrat Betsy Wilt kept her slim lead over Republican David Croyle for the two-year term, garnering 55 votes to Croyle's 51. There was one write-in vote.
Croyle, a newcomer to council, was the winner of the four-year term.
According to the official results, Croyle won the term with 62 votes to Wilt's 49.
Wilt, who stepped in to fill the 1st Ward seat when it was vacated in 2010, said she is grateful to the voters for their support and looks forward to continuing to serve alongside council members.
Croyle echoed her sentiment and added: “I'm looking forward to working with (Wilt) and the rest of council.”
