Christen Borso, NorCo's Miss Congeniality
When I arrived in Easton this evening, hoping to catch some of the candidate remarks in a crowded Northampton County Council race, it was already over. But I was lucky enough to corner Christen Borso before she left.
If they handed out Miss Congeniality awards in politics, she'd win hands down. here's what she had to say:
"I've been a resident of Northampton County in Bethlehem for 44 years. I would like to be on Council simply because I have attended every Council meeting for the last year. I also feel I am the average person, which I think is very important. I'd be there working for you. I believe it's important to be a great communicator, that it's important to be able to get along with people. I also like to tell you that I'm part of Lehigh Valley Planning Commission, started Women Empowering Women. I am a small business owner. Some of the things that are important to me are infrastructure with the county, creating a stronger bond with the LVEDC, protecting greenspace, farmland preservation (has been phenomenal and I find that fascinating) , and I would also like to preserve Gracedale."
Blogger's Note: I will attempt to get short video clips from the Republican candidates in the coming week.
