Two successful write-in candidates on the Republican ballot for four seats on the Bowmanstown Borough Council have resulted in what will be a contested race in the General Election to be held in November.
The TIMES NEWS incorrectly reported Monday that only four candidates will be seeking the four four-year terms, when there are actually five candidates as a result of the write-in votes.
The successful write-in candidates are Darren Thomas and John Domant, who received 15 and 10 votes, respectively.
They will challenge three Democrats who won nominations in the May 21 Primary Election, including newcomer Robert Moyer, who received 48 voters, and incumbents Burdell Steigerwalt, 41, and William H. Ravert, 24.
Councilman Ravert also won the race for the Democratic nomination for mayor. He defeated newcomer Barry Pointon Jr. by a 29-24 margin.
