It's that time of year again, when township residents start to think about who they want to represent them on their local board of supervisors.


Elections for township officials will be held Tuesday, March 8. Polls will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Castle Rock

In Castle Rock, the position held by Pete Schaffer is up for election. By early Tuesday, Schaffer and Mike Rademacher had both filed for the three-year term.

There are no additional questions on the ballot. The township's annual meeting will be held on election day, at 8:30 p.m.
