by Terry Rogers

 

 

On Tuesday, November 6, Milford area residents went to the polls to elect state and federal representatives. David Wilson was elected for the 18th Senate seat while Bryan Shupe won the race for the 36th Representative District. Senator-elect Wilson will replace Senator Gary Simpson who retired at the end of this term while Representative-elect Shupe will take the seat previously held by Representative Harvey Kenton who also retired this year.

“Thank you for everyone who turned out yesterday to support me,” Representative Wilson said. “Everyone from the voters to the polling place greeters, victory would not have been possible without you. I look forward to serving the 18th Senate District with the same dedication as I did serving the 35th Representative District.”

Senator-elect Wilson received 10,816 (65.17%) of the vote, defeating Milford resident, Jim Purcell, who earned 5,783 (34.83%) of the vote.

Representative-elect Shupe, who served as the Mayor of Milford before deciding to run for the House of Representatives, earned 5,244 (64.81%) votes while his challenger, Donald M. Allan, Jr. of Milton earned 2,848 (35.19%) votes.

“I am humbled by the overwhelming support of our community throughout our campaign for State House,” Representative-elect Shupe said. “From longtime friends to ones I met on the campaign trail, the relationships that were built are irreplaceable. I am looking forward to working alongside our residents, businesses, community organizations and local governments to help strengthen our economy, rebuild our infrastructure and ensure clean water for all.”

Representative-elect Shupe plans to continue hosting community meetings throughout the 36th District and has set up a Facebook page at https://m.facebook.com/State-Representative-Bryan-Shupe-2037705156252029/ where constituents can discuss their concerns and ideas for the district.
