01 - 07 - 2014 Deadlock vote on Borough Council VP position broken by Mayor
[LS] - Last night at the Lewistown Borough Council meeting, Mayor Deb Bargo was faced with a "difficult decision". A deadlocked vote on the council's vote for the Vice President position, between Gregg O'Donnell & Matt Moore, had to be broken. Bargo decided to give Moore the chance to try the VP position by casting her vote to him but added that "Both would be excellent as a vice president." This came after the council made nominations & voted for the new council president. Last year's president, Russ Rager and new Council Member Mark Lawson were both nominated with Rager winning the majority of votes for the 2014 president position.
