One Democrat Will Challenge Republican Incumbents in November

Primary election saw no race for council seat nominations on either party.

Republican Councilmen John Dingertopadre and Russell Lipari will seek their second terms this November, while Democrat Christian Semenecz, a former councilman, will seek to unseat one of them.

There was no contested race in the Tuesday primary election for the nomination on either party side. Voters did come to the polls, however, giving Dingertopadre 292 and Lipari 313 votes. Semenecz received 237 votes.

Tuesday also marked the deadline for Independent candidates to file petition  to run with the county election office, but no one came forward, according to Borough Clerk Rose Sees.

Dingertopadre has previousy served as fire commissioner and is currently commissioner of Parks, Public Facilities and Transportation. He also serves as deputy commissioner of Recreation.

Lipari, council president, serves as commissioner of Health and Land Use and is the  commissioner of Parks, Public Facilities and Transportation. Lipari also serves on the Planning Board.

Semenecz, a long time member of the volunteer fire department, has run for re-election to council in previous years. Last year he entered the mayoral race as an Independent but withdrew from the race.
