Skip Ebert and Kelly Neiderer came out ahead in the race for Cumberland County district attorney and county treasurer, respectively, giving the GOP both of the county’s open row offices.
Ebert pulled in roughly 61 percent of the vote in his race against Democratic candidate Sean Quinlan. Neiderer brought in 59 percent of the vote versus Democrat Jake Miller.
Ebert has been serving as the county’s interim district attorney since 2017, when former DA Dave Freed resigned to become the U.S. attorney for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. Ebert was also Freed’s predecessor, having served as DA from 1996 to 2006 before successfully running for common pleas judge.

After Freed’s departure, the county’s other common pleas judges selected Ebert to fill the remainder of Freed’s term. Early this year, Ebert announced he would run to take his old job back for a full term.
The treasurer’s position was fully open with the retirement of current county treasurer John Gross.
