Zeronas selected to fill vacant SR Borough council seat

Feb. 8, 2018

Denton Zeronas, a Slippery Rock University senior secondary education-social studies major from New Castle, was recently appointed to the Slippery Rock Borough council, becoming the first person to serve on the council while enrolled as a full-time student at SRU.

Zeronas, who ran for council in the spring 2017 primary but did not advance to the November ballot, was selected from among a group of four persons vying for the vacant seat created when Russ Karl won both the two-year and four-year seats in the general election. Karl chose the four-year appointment, thereby making the two-year seat open.
