Paramedic, Public Health Professional Seeks Seat on NorCo Council

Northampton County Council includes five at-large positions. All are up for election this year. Incumbent Democrats Ron Heckman, Lori Vargo-Heffner, Bill McGee and Tara Zrinski are all expected to seek re-election. Incumbent Republican Peg Ferraro, however, is retiring from a lifetime of politics at the end of her term this year.

Annmaie T Robertone would like one of those five seats.

A resident of Pen Argyl, Robertone is a graduate of Pius X High School. She has both a B.S. and Master's in Public Health from East Stroudsburg University.

A certified paramedic, she is President of the Roseto Ladies Chapter of UNICO; member of The Blue and White Scholastic Foundation; Founding Member of Medic 9 Paramedic Unit; and first female President of Liberty Ambulance. She continues to be active in EMS as an EMT and CPR Instructor.

In her campaign announcement, Robertone indicates she has retired from her professional career. Review of her LinkedIn page, however, indicates she has had numerous contacts with hospitals and medcical practitioners over the years. In a time in which we are still reeling from a pandemic, Robertone's resume speaks for itself.

She indicates her campaign will focus on fiscal conservatism; government transparency; inclusion of public input on all matters; and an insistence that Gracedale remain county run.

Robertone is a Republican.

She would be an excellent choice. She is fair, smart and diligent. You go girl!

Robertone is Republican. I know I noted her party affiliation in an earlier draft, but must have inadvertently deleted it. I looked at her Facebook page and saw no evidence of extremism.

If she was a democrat would you search for extremism?

Bernie, No evidence of extremism??? She didn't counter protest BLM? She did invade the Capitol? What kind of Republican is she?!?!? Lee Snover will hate her.

"If she was a democrat would you search for extremism?"

Absolutely. In fact, several Democrats - including Zrinski, Vargo-Heffner and Zannelli - have blocked me on Facebook for pointing out their extremism.

She is a new Republican, she is a Trumpster. End of story. Can't have that nonsense here.

Saturday proved exactly how reasonable Republicans can be. Formerly reasonble representatives showed they are anything but. In the past I voted for a few , not many, moving forward in would never consider voting for one again.

Extremism in defense of plastic straw bans is no vice!

"anyone is better than any democrat"

These two comments demonstrate the moronic tribalism that has consumed this country.

I will wait to hear from her and then make up my mind.

Also, I decline to post several questions to which I have no answer. I would need to talk to her first.

I know Annamarie personally from my time of volunteering in EMS. She is a smart cookie and a very hard worker.
