Dunmore Elects New Mayor Tim Burke Who Ran A Campaign Centered Around His Opposition to the Keystone Expansion

As quoted in a May 6th story in the Scranton Times-Tribune, Tim Burke had this to say about why he was running against the incumbent, Patrick "Nibs" Loughney: "I believe that if we close that landfill after eight to ten years or whatever its remaining life expectancy ends up being, we can bring jobs into the area. We need more manufacturing jobs to keep young people right here instead of having a place where you have to worry about a landfill right in the middle of the neighborhood....I won't give up the fight."
