Fire District Elections on Saturday

There are contested races in four of the township's six fire districts.

Correction: This article, which was published the morning of Feb. 18, initially indicated Rich Annacone was seeking a full three-year term on the Erial fire district's board of commissioners. Annacone was seeking to complete the final tow years of an unexpired term. George Brown was running for the full term. Patch regrets the error.
