The 2011 election for Constable of Sunbury's 9th Ward ended in a tie between two write-in candidates. On November 28th, 2011 a tiebreaker was held to determine the winner. They drew lots, also known as sortition, to determine the winner. The candidate who lost did not appear in person so an election official drew a number for them, one out of 16 numbers. The Republican write-in candidate, Ed Quiggle, Jr., drew the lowest number, 4, and won.

MESSAGE FROM CONSTABLE ED QUIGGLE, JR.
Hello, I plan to turn this web site into a place where people can learn about the office of Constable. Constables are the oldest branch of Law Enforcement, Pennsylvania State Constables have been serving since 1664. Since many people are unaware or unsure of what a constable does I plan to help explain it on this website. I plan to get all certifications required and begin serving as soon as possible. The motto of the office is Pax, Misericordia, et Justitia, which is Latin for Peace, Compassion, and Justice (it can also be read as Peace, Mercy, and Justice), I chose this because I believe it embodies the mission of a Pennsylvania State Constable.
In recent years the office of State Constable has come under fire in Pennsylvania because of the actions of a few constables who abused their power. I promise that as constable I will not exceed the authority of the office of Constable and swear to uphold my oath of office.
