While technically correct in a bulleted list, "experience" is a bit subjective.

He is a good GOP foot soldier if one is looking for a partisan foot soldier's mentality on Council. However, based upon your other posts today, and in the past, I can't see Bernie supporting such a selection.

I believe Wayne Grube's replacement, like him, should be a Democrat. This avoids hard feelings by the Dems. I also believe the selection should be someone who agrees not to run for the seat and have a leg up on everyone else. This avoids hard feelings by the Rs.

Considering NorCo/PA politics, perhaps we should call this the "Zito Rule"??

Isn't this the guy who once dropped out of a County Council at large race. He allegedly took a bag of cash and quit so Jack Bradt could be put on the ticket.

I'm positive, ask Angle he would know.

I'll ask Birk Thursday night and won't do it anonymously.
