- Proposals to develop park spark charges of conflict by solicitor from the P-G on March 01, 2007, by Al Lowe
All Democratic Dormont council, in July 2006, unanimously chose Norman Simeone, 74, a veteran Republican politician who had served for 12 years.
"He was only off seven months," acting Dormont council President Linda Kitchen said of Mr. Simeone, who was the highest vote-getter to lose in November 2005 election.
- "We didn't look at it in terms of him being a registered Republican or registered Democrat. He is clearly familiar with everything we're doing and is still active in the borough, helping to organize Dormont Day on July 4," Mrs. Kitchen said.
Mr. Simeone will serve the 1 1/2 years left in the term of Joseph Costanzo, who resigned because of work commitments.
Dormont didn't interview candidates.
