Psychotherapist to Run For NorCo Council
Lori Vargo Heffner is expected to announce her candidacy for Northampton County Council District 3 seat this evening at The Hellertown Historical Society. Since she has no opposition, it's likely she will be the Democratic nominee and will face either Mickey Thompson or John Cusick in the general election.
A psychotherapist at Affiliated Clinical Services, she's a graduate of Moravian College who went on to obtain Master's degrees at Kutztown (psychology) and Temple (education). She believes her background will be an asset to a County charged with the responsibility of delivering human services.
“It's time to stop seeing basic, essential County needs as an either-or issue. We need to work together to accomplish goals and to provide high-quality services with practical, fiscally appropriate solutions."
She hopes to foster open communications, transparency and healthy dialogue.
