Two newcomers are fighting for a spot on Hempfield’s Board of Supervisors and are set to face two incumbents in the general election.

Scott Graham and Daniel Kremer, both Democrats, will compete against Republican incumbents Tom Logan and Doug Weimer in November.

“I feel very good,” said Graham, who received over 52% of the votes in Tuesday’s primary election. “To come out with a large number of votes was nice to see. We’re going to be ready for a brawl here in the fall.”

Kremer received 45% of votes. Neither Graham, who is running on a platform of transparency and accountability, nor Kremer, who wants to improve public safety and infrastructure, have run for public office in the past.

Weimer, who previously served as secretary, chairman and treasurer on the board, and Logan, who is board treasurer, ran a joint campaign, a nod to their years of working together, Weimer said.

“I think that Tom Logan and I ran a positive race around a proven record about not raising taxes and our accomplishments of serving the residents of Hempfield Township,” said Weimer, who received over 32% of the votes. “I truly enjoy serving my community and look forward to the months ahead of the fall election and continuing to meet residents and represent them on the board of supervisors.”

Logan, who received over 27% of votes, said he is looking forward to the general election and serving Hempfield residents.

Logan and Weimer beat Republican candidates Jerry Fagert, who received 13% of votes, and Dan Galbraith, who received over 26% of votes.

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.
