David Stone spent his election day campaigning for his friend Janet Engeman. The State College native hoped to help Engeman clinch one of the four available seats on the State College Borough Council. Stone, who lost a bid for a borough council seat last election, said he chose to focus his efforts on ensuring the “best possible candidate” got a seat this year.
A former teacher, Engeman was born in Centre County and taught at State College High School before she retired. Now, according to her website, Engeman will attempt to unite the borough and the university “to promote more collaboration and transparency for the benefit of both town and gown.” Stone encouraged voters walking into the Church of Christ to select Engeman on their ballet.
