In a hopeful sign, the Northampton County Dem web page actually contains a notice about the next election. It's scheduled for next Thursday, June 17th, in Courtroom #1 at the Northampton County Courthouse, 669 Washington Street Easton, PA 18042. Check in is at 6:30PM, but the meeting itself does not start until 7:30PM.
According to the notice, "Guests are welcome to observe. Only those elected committee persons shall have the right to vote. At this meeting committee persons will elect the County Chair and the Vice Chair who will serve for the next four years. Therefore, it is imperative that all committee persons attend."
I've told you before that Joe Long's preferred successor is Walt Garvin, who chaired the Elections Commission and was an unsuccessful candidate for County Council last year. Garvin is opposed by Michael Laws, who will take steps to ensure that "everyone can participate in a big tent. Not just a certain few."
What about the Chairman of Vice? Most of you are probably thinking of me, but by-laws provide that if a male is elected chair, the vice-chair must be female.
And then there's some kind of mating ritual.
