Tokar-Ickes to be sworn in as commissioner Friday


Somerset County is a day away from once again having a third commissioner.

County President Judge D. Gregory Geary will swear in Democrat Pamela Tokar-Ickes at 9 a.m. Friday after she won the Democratic primary Tuesday by a comfortable margin.

Tokar-Ickes won 41% of the vote in a three-person race, according to unofficial county election results.

Geary had pledged to appoint the highest Democratic vote-getter.

“Basically I will be in place from that moment on,” she said.

“And I am looking forward to fulfilling the vacancy.”

And she is not the only one ready for her to fill the vacancy created by Democratic Commissioner John Vatavuk’s January death.
