The LV's Top Ten: Make Your Nominations Now!

Who are the top ten elected officials in the Lehigh Valley?

That's the question I posed on Tuesday, and I've been taking nominations since that time. You can make your nomination here.

Next week, you can cast your votes over at LVPoliblog. You'll be able to select three elected leaders from the nominations I'll be forwarding to Chris late Saturday night.

So far, twenty-one public officials have been nominated: state rep. Joe Brennan; state rep. Jenn Mann; state rep. Bob Freeman; state rep. Steve Samuelson; state rep. Rich Grucela; state rep. Craig Dally; Lehigh County Exec Don Cunningham; Northampton County Exec John Stoffa; Nazareth Borough Councilman Jack Herbst; Emmaus Borough councilpersons Wes Barrett and Joyce Marin; South Whitehall Commissioner Brad Osborne, Southern Lehigh School Directors Bill Miracle and Bill Eddinger; Lehigh County Commissioner Kurt Derr; Northampton County Council members Mike Dowd and Ron Angle; Kutztown Mayor Sandy Green; Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski; Bethlehem Mayor John Callahan; and U.S. Congressman Charlie Dent.

If you know an elected public official who believes in open and accountable government, and she's not on that list, make your nomination now or forever hold your peace.

Charles Dertinger, Lamont McClure, Tony Branco, Diane Neiper, Wayne Grube, John Morganelli, cause they are right and the rest are wrong. Ask me about Ron Angle and his mouthpiece Bernie O'Hare. Get the truth about LV Dem.

Get the truth about LV Dem.

We're just friends. Honest. I just don't think of LVDem in that way. I save my special feelings for Joe Long.

Anon 2:40,

Just so you know, I can't add Lamont or Tony to the list of nominees because they were selected, not elected, to council. This constest is limited to elected officials. I'll be running another contest for appointed members of government and you can make your nomination then.

Craig Dally, Joe Brennan and Bob Freeman. There are no finer legislative reps better than those three.
