Four More Years For Montoursville Mayor

Posted on: 11:16 pm, November 5, 2013, by

MONTOURSVILLE — Montoursville’s mayor of 30-plus years has unofficially won re-election by a narrow margin.

Republican John Dorin mounted a write-in campaign earlier this year and got enough votes to be on the Democratic ticket this November.

According to early Lycoming County election results, Dorin had about 50 more votes than his challenger, Republican Kim Dirocco.

If the votes hold up, Dorin will serve a ninth term as mayor in Montoursville.

“I come up with a write-in after I decided to retire. And now I’m going in for four more years. This is great, I love Montoursville, it’s a great community and I’m going to look for four more years,” Mayor Dorin said.

He says his campaign spent more this election than any of the previous eight combined.

Turnout in the borough was big with more than 1,200 voters going to the polls, voting to re-elect John Dorin as mayor of Montoursville.

    Four more years for the mayor in Montoursville. Great. But what about four more years for Watsontown Mayor, Dave Hontz who was re-elected by 256 write-in votes! More people voted in Watsontown this election than in the last presidential election and you can’t even run Watsontown’s results on your crawl. Do you even know where Watsontown is???????????
