And They're Off!!

This year in the election cycle is a year in which we elect our next county commissioners and our row officers (everything from sheriff to register of wills to clerk of courts, treasurer, prothonotary, etc). In the last such election, the Democrats in Montgomery County made some inroads, scoring some of those seats.

This time around, the Republican Party is locked, loaded and taking aim to win them all back. Some seats are running unopposed in this spring’s primary (May 17); some have several people competing on both the D and R sides of the ticket for the slot. To see a full list of Republican candidates, check out my district website at www.lowerprovidence2-3.com, or the county MCRC site at http://www.montgomerycountygop.com/ . For a full list of Democrat candidates, check http://mcdems.org/.

This is also the year in which we in Lower Providence, a Second Class Township, elect two supervisors. Supervisors are the equivalent of a smaller municipality’s mayor. A total of five hold staggered terms so that every couple years, one or two seats are open. Because so many people have asked me to consider it, I have decided to run for one of them. If I don’t already have it, I hope to win your support.

So, if I’m not posting here much over the next few weeks, it’s because I’m out knocking on doors, holding fundraisers, and putting out signs. As a Republican, I’ll only be knocking on those doors - Pennysylvania has a closed primary, so only those registered in one party or the other can vote for their respective candidates - but if you’re out when I stop by, or you just have a question or comment to relay, I’d be happy to hear from you. You can always reach me at my email (lowerprov2-3@yahoo.com) or my home phone (610-539-5175).
