ROCKLAND

What many had viewed as a strong write-in challenge for the Rockland Township supervisor's post never materialized Tuesday as incumbent Bill Propst appears to have handily won re-election.

In Rockland II, Propst had 41 votes and there were 16 write-in votes cast. In Rockland I, Propst had 275 votes compared to 115 write-ins.

The final vote tally later this week will identify who the write-in votes were for but their effect is negligible since Propst outpolled all the write-ins. Ron Himes had been waging a write-in campaign.
