Matt Dees-grace has worn out his welcome on the dais of West Easton, he should stick to piloting the short bus and domain squating.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Matt Dees is an exceptional example of good government, in stark contrast to you. He defeated you once and will Do so again. Oink away.

Is that a Heckman running in Bath? What is up with that?

Rock'n Newell said...

Where is my favorite candidate? Isn't that poor young woman in West Easton going to run for Mayer and Council? She understands me.

It is Shannon Patrick for Bethlehem Area School Board

Bernie O'Hare said...

Thank you.

who is running for Northampton County council?

Bernie O'Hare said...

No petitions have been filed at this point. I have posted numerous stories about who is running. When the petitions are filed next week, I will have another story.

Did Roger Ruggles switch parties? I thought he was a lone Republican in Easton.

Bernie O'Hare said...

He switched some time ago.

Rumor is that Benol is resigning?

Bernie O'Hare said...

He is not seeking reelection and that is something I reported to hear about two weeks ago.

Was Benol pushed out to make way for Angle?

Nothing from Hudak in BT?

I was hoping for a heated race in Chapman this year.

Bernie O'Hare said...

"Nothing from Hudak in BT?"

If there was, it would have been posted with the others. I am sure he has his signatures. This is just an indication of who has filed so far.

Had Mat decided he wanted to run, my guess is that the party would have endorsed him. He has been a loyal John Brown soldier. His decision not to run is his own. Only Matt Munsey tries to tell people not to run.
