Marx, Cheyne, Simpson, Shissler win Delmont council spots
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.
“It's humbling. It really is,” Marx said of taking the most votes as a first-time candidate. “I'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.
