Last week, LV4All hosted a nearly four-hour long candidate's night. It's been posted on YouTube. The following are snippets of what NorCo Council candidates said about themselves.
Patti Bruno: "Trumpism is alive and well, not just in Northampton County, but the entire Lehigh Valley. ... They're going against moderation.
Tara Zrinski: "I want to tell people what we've actually accomplished. ... [W]e've been able to give small businesses - almost 800 small businesses - $10.8 of relief. We've also given $16 million to non-profit communities, front-line workers and emergency management. These are huge and this is what Northampton County Council can do with a great Executive."
Bill McGee: "Think about one thing. If we didn't win three years ago, where would the county be today in John Brown's hands?"
Lori Vargo-Heffner: "We were able to increase morale [at Gracedale] and increase their ratings because they were a two-star facility. ... We take care of the unsexy things in government."
Ron Heckman: "We have candidates coming against us who are extreme - there's just no other way of putting it. ... It is imperative that we protect Gracedale ... County government is the safety net for the most vulnerable citizens of the County."
