Who's Coming to the Tea Party?

On Tuesday, I told you that the Lehigh Valley Project 9/12 - Tea Party Group, will host a "Meet the Candidates" evening this Friday at the Chrin Community Center in Palmer Township, beginning at 7:00 p.m. (Map here).

State Senators Pat Browne and Bob Mensch have committed, as have challengers Matt Connolly and Rick Orloski.

State House candidates Rex D'Agostino, Charles Dertinger and Justin Simmons will be there, too, for one-on-one exchanges with voters.

More candidates may commit between now and Friday night. It is very refreshing that Democrats Dertinger and Orloski and Green Party D'Agostino are willing to meet with a group of citizens whose ideology is very different from their own. We all win when people are willing to talk to each other, instead of past each other. I'll be there with my flipcam, hoping somebody gets decked, like the Mad Hatter at any tea party.

Will anyone represent Bob Freeman's estate?

The late Bob Freeman will be represented by his very tasteful cardboard cut-out.
