NorCo Council Republicans On Their Own
Incumbent Peg Ferraro raised the most money of any candidates, Democrat or Republican, with $8,662.47. Like Executive candidate John Brown, she's using Communication Concepts as her political consultant.
Of course, she drew financial support from many of the usual big money Republicans. But a sign of her bipartisan appeal is a $100 contribution from Northampton County Council member Ken Kraft, a Democrat. That small donation speaks volumes about Peg's appeal across the aisle.
Hayden Phillips, who has a great deal of support among tea party Republicans, raised $4,577.50. This includes a $500 contribution from conservative State Rep. Mario Scavello, who wants to eliminate the Prevailing Wage Act.
Seth Vaughn reports raising $2,605, which includes $500 from industry captain Elmer Gates.
Reports filed by Glenn Geissinger and Mat Benol were unavailable when I left the elections office at 2 pm. I will tell you about them tomorrow.
