GIRARDVILLE - Girardville will have a new mayor come the new year, while a pair of incumbents will likely hold their seats on council and a third available seat may be decided by write-in votes.
Michael J. Zangari, a volunteer firefighter with the Rangers Fire Company in Girardville, ran unopposed for mayor in the borough.
"I'm motivated, I'm going to get things done, and I'm going to deliver," Zangari told WYLN-TV 35 in April.
Zangari will be the youngest mayor in the borough's history. He received 268 votes, with 27 write-in votes tallied.
Current council president Rob Krick will retain his seat on council, as will Charles Marquardt. Marquardt was the top vote-getter in the race for three open seats on council with 214 votes, ahead of Krick's 102. 414 write-in votes were cast in the election, which will likely decide the third council seat, and potentially Krick's, should two write-in candidates received 103 or more votes each.
