Sorting out CD school board race

The municipal primary election on May 21 is only hours away — and the hottest race by far is for Central Dauphin School Board in voting region #2.

The winners of this race could impact who holds leadership positions on the board starting late this year.

You’ll be voting for the candidates shown above if you live in western and southern Lower Paxton Township, Dauphin Borough and Middle Paxton Township. CLICK HERE for a map of Central Dauphin’s three voting regions.

There’s been what probably is an unprecedented amount of money spent on campaign signs, mailers and billboards by a pair of two-person teams.

The candidates are Richard Mazzatesta and his partner Ted Giovanis and their opponents Lauren Silvers and Ryan Gonder.

Below are videos of the candidates taken during a forum held on April 17 by Linglestown Area Civic Association:


The candidates in region #3 that covers eastern sections of Lower Paxton Township and all of West Hanover Township are unopposed. This means incumbent Ford Thompson and former school board member Linda Dallago will appear on the November ballot.

Voting region #1 is outside the coverage area of Linglestown Gazette. It’s located in Swatara Township, Paxtang and Penbrook.
