Tonight's meeting of the Northampton County citizens' elections task force has been cancelled. Director of Administration John Conklin informs me that surveys were just sent to candidates, poll workers and voters. Not enough time has elapsed for a meaningful review.
Sounds plausible, but I know the real reasons. First, the county simply can't absorb another Larry Otter bill. Second, Morning Call columnist Bill White had threatened an appearance, and task force members have fled the county.
