|John Callahan proposes return to Senior Fairs|
These are the people who can be helped by a return to something Northampton County used to do in years past - Senior Fair Expos. Today, that's exactly what Northampton County Executive candidate John Callahan proposed. He did so standing outside Gracedale Nursing Home, the very place from which he launched his campaign on a cold Winter day. This time, he was joined by the entire slate of Democratic County Council candidates.He was introduced by a Dean of Northampton County Democrats, former State Rep. and NorCo Council member Rich Grucela. Incumbent Council member Bob Werner, who was at Gracedale on County business, joined Callahan. Even AFSCME union boss Justus James, who supported a Callahan opponent in the primary, was there.

"It's also a chance for us to learn from them," observed Callahan, noting that the information exchange is a two-way street.

When they opened the floor up for questions, I had one.
"Do you have any credentials? asked Callahan.
"None at all," I answered.
Then Council candidate Jerry Seyfried had a question for me.
"As an outsider, what do you think of the human race, Bernie?"
These are the people I support.
