Two years ago, Shegda waged a losing write-in campaign for Freeman's 136th state house seat, which extends from Easton to Hellertown. At that time, Shegda was also soliciting contributions for the U.S. Senate in 2010, and claimed to be as "wise as serpents and gentle as doves."
I see enough snakes on Northampton County Council, and I sure as hell would never send one of them to Harrisburg.
A few weeks ago, Shegda and his posse tried to evict AJ and me from our seats at a Bennett-Dent debate in Allentown. We refused to move. He also recently lambasted Express Times editor Tony Rhodin in a goofy email, which you can read here.
He reads like he needs a rest at Happydale.
On Thursday night, Shegda will cross swords with Freeman at a candidates' night sponsored by the LWV and AAUW.
When: Thursday, October 23, 2008, 7 to 9 PM
Where: St. John's Lutheran Church, 330 Ferry Street, Easton, PA 18042.
