Yesterday, Northampton County Democrats held their annual family picnic at Hugh Moore Park in Easton. During this shindig, Northampton County Council member Bob Werner announced his intention to run in the next Executive race.
Incumbent John Brown is currently running for state Auditor General. If he wins that seat, and that just might happen, Republican Council members will appoint an interim Executive.
State Senator Lisa Boscola is also being begged to run. Before she went into politics, she had six years of experience as a Deputy Court Administrator. If she decides to run, this race is over for everyone. She will win, and will probably ensure that a Democratic Council is elected.
