MIFFLINTOWN - Republican Amy L. Wagner won the race for the Region 4 position on the Juniata County School District Board of Directors, defeating Democratic opponent Helen M. Casner by a comfortable margin Tuesday.
Wagner secured 312 votes, while Casner secured 192 votes, according to unofficial election results.
