Soldridge, who refers to herself as a "genuine outsider," said she was inspired to run by the "recent excitement of the Presidential campaign." She notes the current "lopsided one-party control of every facet of government in Northampton County, and states she "wants to promote more open, plain-talk conversation between elected official and citizens."
She notes she is married, has two "beautiful children" and attends Bethany Wesleyan Church in Cherryville.
She previously served on the Lehigh Township Zoning board and has been a soccer coach in the community.
I am unaware of her educational background.
She notes she would bring representation to the western end of the county, although incumbent Bill McGee is from the western end.
She also states she has seen the "trials and tribulations" her family has faced as a result of "excessive local government restrictions." She fails to mention what these are. Perhaps she refers to state and federal regulations. I call them protections. Those who take issue with these protections need only look at their absence has done to ordinary citizens in Texas.
In addition to this announcement, I watched Northampton County Council hopefuls speak before LVAll (who agree with them) last week. Their strategy is to paint the GOP candidates as Trump extremists. They may be off about Goffredo and Robertone, but I suspect that Soldridge falls in that category.
