Cozze is a lifelong LV resident who earned her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Pittsburgh, where she majored in Psychology and minored in Business Administration. She then worked at Deerfoot Auto Parts, a successful family-owned auto recycling and service business located in Wind Gap. She also started her own cake bakery in Nazareth.
You may remember her as a candidate for State Rep. She ran against incumbent Joe Emrick. He smeared her at the end of the race with a negative mailer and TV ad attacking her for sending "foreign substances" to the Nazareth police. It was apparently the result of Cozze and a business colleague using glitter while making decorations for some event in Nazareth. Glitter tends to stick to everything, and it got stuck to a few paid parking tickets.
Though this was completely innocuous, Cozze received threatening calls. Someone even let the air out of her tires.
It was a cheap shot, typical of Emrick.
Unless McClure is creating a new position, no Council approval is needed for this hire.
Cozze, along with Becky Bartlett and Tina Smith, is McClure's third hire of someone in the Nazareth area.
He did offer me a job as Solicitor, but I wanted too much money.
Updated 3 pm: Ms. Cozze is working for Administrator Charles Dertinger and Director of Court Services Ken Brown, not Ken Kraft.
