Newcomers William Marx, Stan Cheyne and Pamela Simpson will join incumbent Andrew Shissler on Delmont council after their wins in Tuesday's general election.

Marx, 41, led all candidates with just over 18 percent of the vote, according to unofficial returns. Simpson, 56, and Shissler, 47, won their seats with 17.75 percent of the vote, and Cheyne, 36, received 17.44 percent of the vote.

β€œIt's humbling. It really is,” Marx said of taking the most votes as a first-time candidate. β€œI'm really surprised and I'm just hoping to get in there and work with the other members of council. Stan Cheyne and I worked together on the recreation board and he won tonight as well. So I'm looking forward to working with him.”

Shissler and Marx said they wanted to continue improvements to the borough's storm water and sewer system. Simpson said she would like to continue improving borough roads and parks.

Delmont voters cast 1,611 ballots.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
