Cole wins Brown Twp. trustee seat


Steve Cole will apparently be Brown Township’s new trustee.

Cole defeated incument trustee James E. Andres and Larry A. Beard in Tuesday’s election.

In unofficial results, Cole received 210 votes, while Andres received 199 and Beard got 86.

Andres was running for a third term as trustee.

Cole, a retired surveyor who now drives school buses for Delaware City Schools, has been a member of the township’s zoning commission for 11 years.

He said one of his goals is to make it easier to build and sell land in the township.
