PUNXSUTAWNEY — Punxsutawney Borough Council appointed Jaime Sherry of Highland Avenue, Punxsy, as the newest council member to succeed Robert Reesman, who was appointed to fill the unexpired term of Susan Glessner after her resignation earlier this year.

Reesman recently resigned because he was moving out of the borough.
Council President Larry Chenoga said Sherry was the first person to submit her application for the position, and that was the order in which council would vote on the candidates.

“We will vote on each applicant in the order that their letter of interest was received,” he said.

Solicitor Jay Lundy said council needed only a voice vote on Sherry’s approval, and that a roll call vote would have been needed only if the members of council were split on the vote.

Sherry was approved by council and was sworn in by Punxsutawney Mayor Jim Wehrle and took her seat at the council table.
