Derry Township 2015 Primary Update‏

The following is based on the “Unofficial”

Two candidates each party, and chose two (2) for Supervisor, as expected: Incumbents Sandy and Marc Moyer, and Susan Cort and myself.

No primary challenges for Supervisor.  Shameless plug: Here is my campaign website:

Derry Primary Ballot 2015 is Page 10 of 33 of the full Dauphin County Ballot here:

For those who get The Sun online, you can read my article:

“Four Out At DTSD – Primary Candidates File”
By Dave Buffington and Steve Todd

For those who do not, I update you on the unforeseen slam dunk of a Derry School Board race. Note that School Board ballot’s 2 Dem, 2 GOP, 1 Independent (Singer) split almost perfectly mirrors our Derry voter divide. It beats last time: 5 GOP sweep.

I don’t know who the Derry Republicans are endorsing, if anyone. Democratic endorsements are March 18. Neither Maryellen Sheehan nor Andrea Abruzzo have filed, even after circulating petitions.

Five candidates, and chose up to five (5) for School Board. Barring a long shot write in or independent challenge (extremely unlikely, especially given that all 5 have cross filed), the school board race is over before it began.

Meet Derry Township’s five new School Board members, by default:

Christopher S. BARRETT (R)
2130 Southpointe Drive
Hummelstown, PA 17036

Megan HULSE (R)
1215 Stonegate Road
Hummelstown, PA 17036

Scott C. SCHUYLER (D)
311 Red Oak Lane
Hershey, PA 17033

Kathy SICHER (D)
940 Front Street
Hershey, PA 17033

Terry SINGER (I)
858 Appenzell Drive
Hummelstown, PA 17036

There are two completely opened seats for Auditor. No one will be balloted, from either major party.

March 31 UPDATE – Derry School Board Race

Former candidates Megan Hulse (R) and Scott C. Schuyler (D) have removed their names from the ballot. There are now two (2) seats open to write-in or third party/Independent challenges. The candidates remaining are:

Christopher S. BARRETT (R)
2130 Southpointe Drive
Hummelstown, PA 17036

Kathy SICHER (D)
940 Front Street
Hershey, PA 17033

Terry SINGER (I)
858 Appenzell Drive
Hummelstown, PA 17036

All are cross registered.  The ballot order of all candidates appears here:

Results

Maria Memmi and Jenn Mysal appear to have turned out enough write in votes to avoid a competitive race in the fall for the five seats.  We’ll see.

Dems:

Kathy SICHER 512
Christopher S. BARRETT 437
Terry SINGER 387
Write In 142

GOP:

Christopher S. BARRETT 1010
Terry SINGER 880
Kathy SICHER 878
Write In 302

http://www.dauphinc.org/vote/NewViewRaceForm.aspx?select1=DERRY%20SCHOOL%20-R&select2=

Christopher S. BARRETT (Rep) 1,447

Kathy SICHER (Dem) 1,390

Terry SINGER (Ind) 1,267

Write In 444

Turnout?

Appears to have been dismal.  Total School Board votes cast: 4,548, which would equal 909 Derry voters, if each cast all five votes possible.

Total Supervisor votes cast: 2,184, which would equal 1,092 Derry voters, if each cast both votes possible.

Total Supreme Court votes cast: 5,115, which would equal 1,705 Derry voters, if each cast all three votes possible.
