Penn Township is under new leadership after the Democrats selected Janet Whitfield-Hyduk as the new trustee.
She was selected after just one round of voting. 37 precinct chairs cast ballots during the caucus. 34 of the votes went to her with the remaining going to the other two candidates.
Whitfield-Hyduk says she's looking forward to getting the township past the Jeff Dean controversy.
“Am I disappointed that what has happened, absolutely, but I tend to live in the present and move forward,” said new Penn Township Trustee Janet Whitfield-Hyduk.
Whitfield-Hyduk was sworn in immediately after the decision was read. She says her first order of business is tackling the budget.
