Stoffa: Salvesen Will Return Integrity & Honesty to Controller's Office
In thanking Stoffa, Salvesen pointed to the only thing that Steve Barron has managed to accomplish since his election as Controller. "My opponent has earned two Turkey awards from a local Lehigh Valley Newspaper, one for his veiled threat against T-Mobile, and another for calling the EPA to investigate the County's handling of the asbestos clean up at its complex. Both Turkey awards are warranted and have caused damage to the Counties reputation and finances. We can not afford four more years of this type of childish behavior. Based on my opponent’s dismal record, one that he can not support to the voters of Northampton County, he has chosen a path of personal attacks and character assassination. On November 8th, we can change the way business is conducted from the Controller's office.”
Salvesen has served Hanover Township for 28 years as a township supervisor as well as its chair. His College education is in finance and accounting and he has worked in both public and private accounting and business management. Salvesen is also experienced as a small business owner and controller for several small businesses.
Salvesen, a Republican, is especially proud of an endorsement from Northampton County's highest-ranking Democratic official. “It is good for the people of Northampton County to have bipartisan cooperation in county government.” said Salvesen.
Stoffa has also endorsed the Northampton County Bulldog, Ron Angle.
