Leonard Wood, former Johnstown hardware man, was elected mayor in a three-way race. Our new mayor picked up 307 votes in outdistancing incumbent mayor Edgar Lewis and Herbert Hartsock. Dan B. Perkins edged veteran Monroe Township trustee Clint Pratt in an extremely close contest by a 465-460 tally. The Johnstown-Monroe schools also had a top-heavy vote of 879-191 in favor of the renewal of a 4.2-mill levy which was to expire.
