Barring a write-in campaign, Shogan should be victorious in the fall general election.
Incumbent Katie Shogan is likely heading for another term on the Pine-Richland School Board. “I’m very excited to have the support of everyone who went out and voted today,” she said Tuesday.

Because she won both nominations, Shogan—barring a write-in vote campaign—should be victorious in the fall’s general election.

The Judge of Elections at the Pine District II polling location at the Pine-Richland High School stadium, Strickland pointed out this year’s election puts into office the people whose decision affect residents most—including township officials and school board members. These candidates often determine tax rates, draft new ordinances and review the businesses that enter the community. “They really have a palpable effect on the way you live…
